Revolvo has expanded its range of split roller bearings with the introduction of flange, hanger and take-up bearing units. Totally split to the shaft, the bearings are designed to simplify and expedite installation; cutting downtime to approximately 10% of that required to replace solid bearings of the same size. They also benefit from superior sealing arrangements, which means longer bearing life with greatly reduced levels of maintenance.
The flange, hanger and take-up bearing units are designed for use in the widest range of industries, providing reduced downtime and improved life in applications in Quarrying, Mining, Steel, Power Generation, Cement, Water Treatment and Sugar Processing - and also across mainstream industry. In these applications the bearings offer maximum strength and durability, with housings that are manufactured from the toughest grey cast iron that´s practically available: a 250-grade material, to BSEN1561, 1997, which meets all design requirements.
Available in Metric shaft sizes from 35 mm to 300 mm (and 13/16" to 12", Imperial), the SRB Flange units provide a simple and durable solution where bearings need to be mounted against horizontal or vertical faces. In common with Revolvo´s SRB pedestal supports, the flange units are produced with a spherical location to accommodate standard SRB bearing housings, and to provide easy alignment of shaft and equipment.
SRB hanger units provide the optimum solution for the support of screw conveyor shafts. The unit comprises of a cast iron split housing into which standard SRB bearings are fitted. The provision of a drilled and tapped boss in one half of the housing allows for the unit to be mounted from the conveyor cross bracing, or any other suitable surface. In addition, to protect against the arduous conditions often encountered in screw conveyor applications, the hanger units are protected by a double sealing arrangement, with many different sealing variants available, all of which can be tailored to suit specific applications. The hanger units are available in Metric shaft sizes from 35 mm to 115 mm, and Imperial sizes from 13/16"- 41/2".
SRB take-up units provide an efficient and readily accessible means of tensioning conveyors, elevators and large scale drive systems in materials handling applications. Available in both push and pull types, both of which are available with SRB´s extensive sealing solutions, the take-up units are designed for use on shaft sizes from 45 mm to 160 mm (111/16" to 6"Imperial sizes).
