How the

Sanibearing Works:

  • Three access slots allow a sliding action to secure the bearing on the end of the mixer shaft and through the spider (legs).

  • Easy twist of bearing seats the spider into 3 support slots, reversal of this action allows bearing to slip free while shaft remains fixed.


  • All bearing slots are radiused, all edges are chamfered to 3A sanitary specifications.


  • Radiused milled flats at the end of rotating mixer shaft redirects CIP solution to effectively wash inner bearing surface.

  • Ends of spider are radiused to provide minimal contact to steady bearing.

Helping the Food Industry Meet Higher Sanitary Standards


Canby, Oregon, July 2008 - JVNW has today received a patent for it’s SaniBearing.


The SaniBearing is a recent addition to a unique line of engineering accomplishments developed in response to a demand for improved CIP (clean-in-place) performance in industrial mixing systems.


Designed to be easily disassembled and removed without tools. It dramatically extends the life of the mixer and improves the performance of the mixer’s operating shaft speed. David Carter Jones, CEO of JVNW, applauds the superior functionality in its simple design as, “Almost too simple. We were amazed no one had come up with this. It saves time and is self-cleaning, even Biodiesel processors love it.” Kyle Sawyer, Chief of Operations at JVNW adds, “This SaniBearing is amazing. Maintenance crews no longer have to break their backs pulling the agitator drive and shaft to change the guide.”


In 2005, JVNW was awarded with our first U.S. Patent for the Sanifoil Impeller. The ultra sanitary clean-in-place design has become standard in JVNW vessels.
