The Boca Bearing Company is proud to announce the expansion of its line of Mounted Unit Bearings and Inserts. Mounted unit bearings are used when a shaft axis is perpendicular to the bearing mounting surface.
BOYNTON, Fla., July 10, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Mounted Unit bearings, also known as bearing units or housed bearings, are powerful mechanical devices designed to support rotating shafts while providing a stable and secure mounting point.
Mounted Units consist of two basic components, the insert, and the housing. Mounted Unit bearings are used when a shaft axis is perpendicular to the bearing mounting surface. Available in 2 or 4-hole configurations, flange-mounted unit bearings and pillow blocks provide a method of accurate mounting fits and load support. Their versatility, robustness, and ability to handle heavy loads make them indispensable in various industrial applications.
The Boca Bearings Company provides mounted unit bearings appropriate for wash-down conditions, high-temperature environments, food processing applications, and heavy industry. Offering Mounted Unit Bearings in various combinations for housings, races, and balls.
Stainless Steel Mounted Unit Bearings are designed to meet all of the most demanding operating environments such as the Medical, Food, Beverage, or Chemical industry. Stainless Steel is ideally suited for applications that require frequent wash downs, operate near food or liquid contaminants, and have high exposure to harsh chemicals or humidity.
Thermoplastic Mounted Unit Bearings consist 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 sizes. Thermoplastic housings will never rust or corrode and characteristically exhibit excellent stiffness, mechanical strength, and dimensional stability.
Miniature Mounted Unit Bearings which have 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.
Pillow Block mounted units are also available in different combinations for various industrial purposes.
Mounted unit bearings find applications in a wide range of industries, including:
- Manufacturing and Production: They are extensively used in conveyor systems, material handling equipment, and production machinery.
- Agriculture: Mounted unit bearings play a crucial role in farm machinery such as combines, tractors, and irrigation systems.
- Mining and Construction: These demanding industries rely on mounted unit bearings for heavy-duty equipment like crushers, screens, and conveyor belts.
- Food and Beverage: Mounted unit bearings with specialized seals and materials are used in processing equipment, packaging machinery, and industrial ovens.
- Load Handling Capability: They can withstand heavy loads and shock loads, ensuring smooth and reliable operation even under demanding conditions.
- Easy Installation: With their straightforward mounting methods, mounted unit bearings can be easily installed, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
- Shaft Protection: By supporting and aligning the shaft, these bearings help reduce wear and prevent premature failure of expensive equipment components.
- Maintenance Efficiency: Depending on the application and bearing type, some mounted unit bearings offer extended maintenance intervals, reducing the need for frequent lubrication or replacement.
All the above-mentioned features, applications, and advantages make Mounted Units a highly versatile and desired product. Allen Baum, Boca Bearings' founder added, "The Boca Bearings company has the largest off-the-shelf inventory of Mounted Unit Bearings ready to ship now worldwide."
