Agricultural bearings are designed to suit the specific needs of the farming industry - needs that include varied loads, extremes of temperature, corrosive environments and high-capacity loads. Our agricultural bearings have a range of custom and standardized bearing designs, and we offer a full line of insert ball bearings with a range of popular seal designs, whether you need a heavy-duty triple or a low torque shield.
Single and double row angular contact Bearings. Double Row Deep groove ball bearings feature higher load ratings when compared to single row bearings. Single Row bearings have internal raceways that are effectively opposite each other, they are designed to accommodate both axial and radial loads and when used in pairs have a tremendous load bearing capacity.
Deep groove ball bearings are particularly versatile. They are simple in design, non-separable, suitable for high and very high speeds and are robust in operation, requiring little maintenance. Because deep groove ball bearings are the most widely used bearing type, they are available in many designs, variants and sizes.
The C3 refers to greater radial clearance to allow for high speed environments where excess heat is generated. Generaly C3 bearings are used in engine and gearbox enviroments. Motorcycle wheels do not usually require C3 bearings. You should always replace a C3 bearing with another C3 bearing.
Hybrid Ceramic Ball Bearings Use a Combination of Traditional 52100 Steel Rings Precision Matched with Silicon Nitrid (Ceramic) Balls. In Addition to Being Excellent Electric Insulators, Hybrid Bearings have a Higher Speed Capacity and Will Provide Longer Service life than all Steel Bearings in Most Applications
CSK bearings can be used as freewheels and can be used in backstop, overrunning or indexing applications. Freewheel bearings are characterised by their ability to turn in one direction only. CSK Bearings are available in stock and in major brands
Delrin is the name commonly used for the less commonly known polyoxymethylene (POM) acetal plastic. It has high mechanical strength and rigidity, is tough and tolerant to repeated impacts and has a good long term fatigue endurance. It has excellent resistance to petroleum based solvents, moisture and other neutral chemicals. Its has good electrical insulating properties and self-lubricates in use. It can be operated within a wide operating temperature range up to 150 Deg C.
The Dunlop bearing design constitutes a new generation of premium quality bearings bringing longer service life, higher operating safety, and prolonged service intervals providing a substantial reduction in the overall operating cost.
Plain Sintered Bearings such as standard Oilite oil retaining tin bronze, gives a good balance between strength, wear resistance, conformability and durability in operation. Ideal in a wide variety of applications where "self lubricating" properties are required over a long period of time.
SKF Energy Efficient E2 bearings can provide more than twice the service life while reducing energy use and total cost of ownership. Design improvements reduce frictional losses in the bearing by at least 30% when compared to the same size SKF Explorer bearing. This results in energy savings over the life of the application.
Spherical bearings, sometimes refereed to as rose bearings or joints. Both metric and imperial sizes held in stock. Spherical plain bearings are appropriate for bearing arrangements where alignment movements between the shaft and housing have to be accommodated, or where oscillating or recurrent tilting must be allowed at comparatively slow sliding speeds. Spherical roller bearings are of an improved design having a modified line contact between the raceways and rollers. This construction enables very high radial and impact-ioad capacity. These bearings can carry a moderately-high level of bi-directional axial load and is self-aligning.
Self-Aligning Ball Bearings are non - separable double - row radial bearings. Both rows of balls rotate, in parallel, within the spherical outer ring. This allows excellent alignment compensation, caused by machining and mounting errors, between the shaft and housing. Self-aligning ball bearings are suitable for low to medium radial loads and low amounts of thrust forces.
These bearings consisting of a shaft and housing washer then assembled with a caged ball bearing between the two. They support axial loads in one direction with the clearance provided in the bore of one of the raceways to ensure alignment. These bearings are used for many applications including: Agricultural, pumps and mining, Heavy engineering usage, Printing equipment, Steel rolling and transmissions.
Thin section bearings are mostly used to save space and benefit from their light weight, multi-load capabilities and high stiffness. Thin section bearings have a small radial cross section and a low thickness. Thin wall bearings available in 2RS (Rubber Sealed), ZZ (Metal Sealed) and OPEN (Non Sealed). All thin wall bearings in stock and supplied in major brands, click on the image to view our listings.
