Introducing Orion’s Bearing Protection Device

Orion Engineered Seals - Bearing Protection Device (BPD)The Orion Engineered Seals Bearing Protection Device (BPD)

The Orion Engineered Seals patented Bearing Protection Device (BPD) represents state of the art bearing protection technology which provides maximum protection against contaminants while maintaining lubrication in the bearing.  It is the premier non-contacting bearing protection device on the market today.

The BPD was designed with an understanding of the nature of the bearing housing environment under all operating conditions and utilizes the laws of physics to create what has proven to be the best performing and most cost effective way to protect the bearings of your rotating equipment. Every feature of the BPD is designed to work together as a system.

What Makes Orion’s Bearing Protection Device (BPD) Better

Orion Engineered Seals - Bearing Protection Device (BPD)Two Vertical Internal Chambers – The Orion BPD utilizes the laws of physics with the vertical alignment of the internal chambers to create the most effective and efficient bearing protection device on the market today.

Internal Static Elastomers – BPD is the only true non-contacting device with two internal static elastomers, eliminating the potential of dynamic o-ring hangup.

Contaminant Exclusion – With double exclusion chambers, the Orion BPD can exclude the higher volumes of contaminant, ensuring longer bearing life.

Angled Oil Return – With an angled oil return, the Orion BPD offers enhanced return flow and higher volume capacity with no oil leakage.

Angled Interface – While competing products offer a straight interface, the Orion BPD features an angled interface, giving the contaminant direction and flow to expel more efficiently.
