These accessories can be used on several bearing platforms. They are also available for customization with support from our application engineering group.
Adapters sleeves are used to mount a tapered bore bearing to a cylindrical shaft. The adapter sleeves consist of a tapered split sleeve, lock nut and either lock washer or locking plate. Care must be taken during assembly to properly drive the bearing up the taper to avoid preloading the bearing.
Backside shield gaskets are mounted between the bearing and the equipment frame to reduce moisture runoff. Backside shields are available for two and four bolt flange mounted ball bearings.
End caps offer excellent protection against high-pressure wash down. They can be used to reduce bearing moisture contact. They can also provide personal protection in order to conform with OSHA and other regulatory guidelines.
Lock collars are used to properly secure concentric lock bearings or eccentric lock bearings to the shaft. These items are replacements if required for our mounted bearings and are not interchangeable with other brands.
Take-up frames allow for adjustment and alignment of conveyor assemblies allowing for proper tension of the conveyor belt. These frames contain a positioning screw that adjusts the bearing assembly location along the frame. Center pull and top mount frame designs are available.
