Thermoplastic Mounted Unit Bearings consists of a high-grade, thermoplastic housing with a stainless steel insert. Full ceramic or ceramic hybrid insert bearings can be substituted upon request from a 0.5000 inch bore to a 1.5000 inch bore in both Metric and Inch. Thermoplastic housings will never rust or corrode and characteristically exhibit excellent stiffness, mechanical strength and dimensional stability. Thermoplastic is ideally suited for applications that require frequent wash downs, operate near food or liquid contaminants and have a high exposure to harsh chemicals or humidity. Pillow Block, Two Bolt Flange and Four Bolt Flange styles are available now. Thermoplastic is capable of handling operating temperatures from -35° C to 102° C.
Mini Mounted Unit Bearings have a rustproof housing made with a special alloy or stainless steel 304 with bearings made from high carbon chromium bearing steel or stainless steel 440C. Low profile mini mounted units are ideally suited for tight spaces and characteristically exhibit excellent stiffness, mechanical strength and dimensional stability. Pillow Block and Two Bolt Flange styles are available now. Selection of the appropriate bearing can be accomplished with knowledge of the shaft size and radial and thrust load requirements. Metric shaft sizes of 10, 12, 15, 17, 20, 25, 30 and 35 mm.
