Insert Bearings & Bearing Housing

Product introduction
Insert bearings are designed to fit into bearing housings. They are often sold when assembled into a suitable bearing housing but may also be bought alone. They have the characteristic of being self aligning and can be easily mounted in a housing block. The housing is available in various configurations.

Insert bearings and bearing housings are used in motors, chain belts, automobiles, chain wheels, mining, metallurgy, mechanical transmission dyeing, chemical industry, textile machinery, agricultural machinery, and machines for food processing and packing.

Features of insert bearings
1. They have deep grooves and wide inner rings.
2. Our insert bearings are mostly made of chrome steel Gcr15 and stainless steel AISI304.
3. They are compact and have the ability to easily align when in operation.
4. These bearings have a compact design and are easy to mount and dismount.
5. We at DEMY can obtain insert bearings with the following series: UC2, UC3, UCX, UK2, UK3, UKX, SA2, SB2, HC2, HC3, SC2, SC3, CSA2, CSB2, and SER2, etc.

Different types of bearing housings
1. Pillow blocks – these include UCP, HCP, UCLP, UKP, UCPX, and UKPX.
These mounted bearings are used when support for a rotating shaft axis is required. Their design enables them to support the shaft in operations where the mounting surface is parallel to the shaft axis.

2. Flange type– includes UCF, HCF, UKF, UCFX, UKFX, UCFU, UCFC, UKFC, UCFS, UCFL, UKFL, UCFT.
The flange type bearing housing comes in various shapes and styles such as square, round, and rhombus flange types.

3. Take-up units type - UCT, HCT, and UKT.
These bearing housings have an inner surface which is concave sphered hence the bearing used has a convex sphered outer surface. They are designed to permit moderate initial misplacement. Widely used in conveyor chains and conveyor belts. A sliding slot at the side of the housing facilitates the free movement of the unit.

4. Cartridge type – UCC, HCC, and UKC.
This type of bearing housing has a cylindrical outer perimeter hence the bearing outer bore is spherical. The entire unit allows free movement in the axial direction and is self-aligning. This type can be used as free side bearings for long shafts because they are capable of accommodating shaft expansion or contraction due to temperature differences. Also suitable where there is adjustment of the axial direction is required.

5. Light duty types - SAFD, SBFD, SAFW, SBFW, SALF, and SBLF.
