BEARING TORSION SPRINGAlways OEM - Nothing generic, "equivalent" or off-brand.
A bearing is a machine element that constrains relative motion to only the desired motion, and reduces friction between moving parts. The design of the bearing may, for example, provide for free linear movement of the moving part or for free rotation around a fixed axis; or, it may prevent a motion by controlling the vectors of normal forces that bear on the moving parts. Most bearings facilitate the desired motion by minimizing friction. Bearings are classified broadly according to the type of operation, the motions allowed, or to the directions of the loads (forces) applied to the parts.
A spring is an elastic object that stores mechanical energy. Springs are typically made of spring steel. There are many spring designs. In everyday use, the term often refers to coil springs. When a conventional spring, without stiffness variability features, is compressed or stretched from its resting position, it exerts an opposing force approximately proportional to its change in length.
Torsion refers to a type of mechanical force or stress that is caused by the application of a twisting or turning force. In the context of restaurant equipment, torsion might be encountered in the operation of a door or another moving part of the equipment. For example, a refrigerator door may be subject to torsion when it is opened and closed, as the hinges absorb the twisting forces generated by the movement of the door. Torsion can also be a factor in the design of other types of restaurant equipment, such as ovens or ranges, mixers and more where the movement of parts or the application of heat can create torsional stresses on various components.).
Torsion springs are helical springs that exert a torque or rotary force. The ends of a torsion spring are attached to other components, and when those components rotate around the center of the spring, the spring tries to push them back to their original position.
