Learn about different bearing units

The selection of the proper bearings for all mechanical systems is essential to the functional and commercial success of that system. The bearings must not only be of the correct functional type and size, but also the right material and have the proper lubricant to ensure reliability, efficiency, and cost effectiveness. The bearings must be matched to the operating environment and handled and installed correctly for the system to be successful.

H200 Adapter Sleeve

A mechanical device used to reduce friction and guide motion of two or more parts which articulate in differing directions.

A rigid structure that supports and locates the seal assembly with respect to the shaft.

The generic term for a bearing with a spherical outside surface and an extended inner ring with a locking device, which is used in a mounted assembly, such as a pillow block or flange unit.

Three bolt flange bearing
Bearings that are mounted within a flanged housing are used when the bearing mounting surface is perpendicular to a shaft axis.  Three bolt flange bearings have a round shape with 3 holes for mounting. The 3-bolt flanged bearing units have bearings that can be moved and aligned to better accomodate long shafts.

Ball Bearing 

A type of rolling-element bearing which uses balls to maintain the separation between the moving parts of the bearing.
