NTN Bearing Corporation of America has announced that its Sentinel Series product line has been revamped to encompass a more expansive offering. NTN’s Sentinel Series is a premium line of corrosion-resistant products ranging from deep groove ball bearings, bearing inserts, and mounted units developed for the harsh conditions of the food & beverage industry. Products are available in numerous combinations of housings – including the recently added three-bolt flange –, protective covers, sealing options, and food-grade standard or solid-lubrication grease. Whether an application requires the ultimate wash-down protection of stainless steel units, caustic resilience of thermoplastic housings or the value performance of zinc, Sentinel Series provides a family of food & beverage market solutions to improve overall equipment effectiveness, increase production, and provide value.
“This is an exciting announcement for NTN,” said James Misch, director of marketing and technical services, NTN. “We have been working on the renovation of our Sentinel Series line for quite a while and are thrilled to see the hard work culminating in this moment. We will continue to update and expand the Sentinel Series line and its’ supporting literature to ensure that we are offering our customers the widest breadth of food & beverage industry solutions while supplying them with the information they need to safeguard against downtime.”
As part of the relaunch, a new Sentinel Series catalog that gives a broad overview of the updated line has been created. Additionally, 256 Sentinel Series SKUs now live in Bearing Finder, NTN’s digital support platform designed to aid distributors, design engineers, and end users in finding the perfect bearing or related product to use in any application. In total, Bearing Finder now houses 39,945 SKUs.
Bearing Finder is hosted on a proprietary platform that offers a customizable part search tool, interactive and downloadable CAD illustrations, comprehensive part interchanges, and exhaustive data sets. It’s part of NTN’s industry-leading suite of training and cataloging entities.
