Browning provides high performance belt drive and bearing products. This meets the demanding requirements of light industrial HVAC package and air handling units.

Belt Drive Products for Industrial Duty Applications

Bushings
Bushings

Our Browning® Split Taper® bushings are the industry's most specified bushing type. This is because they give the designer the world's largest selection of V-belt drive options. These patented bushings provide the fit and concentricity needed to balance most air handling systems. Browning Split Taper bushings are available in inch and metric sizes with a bore range from 3/8″ to 10″.

Single and Multiple Groove Sheaves
Single and Multiple Groove Sheaves

Our Browning® single and multiple groove, cast-iron sheaves are available in A, B, C and 5V belt sections. They are stocked in 1-12 grooves with datum diameters ranging from 2.6″ to 63.8″. All use the Browning Split Taper bushing which provides true concentricity between the sheave and the shaft.

Multiple Variable Pitch Sheaves (MVP)
Multiple Variable Pitch Sheaves (MVP)

Our Browning® MVP® sheaves are designed for V-belt drive requirements up to 750 horsepower. They are stocked in A, B, C, 5V and 8V belt sections. They come in either finished bores or for use with Browning SPLIT TAPER® bushings. MVP sheaves are available in 2-10 grooves with datum diameters ranging from 3.4″ to 17.2″.

V-Belts
V-Belts

Browning is universally known for its broad selection of V-belts. Belts are available in every standard size to match the horsepower range required. Machined matched belts can be provided upon request.

Mounted Ball Bearings for Industry Duty Applications

200 Series Normal-Duty AH Mounted Ball Bearings
200 Series Normal-Duty AH Mounted Ball Bearings

Browning normal-duty Air Handling (AH) cast-iron units are ideal for industrial HVAC applications with moderate loads and higher speeds. The Browning AH 200 Series comes standard with distinct AH housing fit and AH noise testing. AH units also have Browning® mounted ball bearing offer the following features: • auxiliary seal flingers • outer race anti-rotation • semi-solid housing bases, the prevent sheet metal "buckling"

300 Series Medium-Duty AH Mounted Ball Bearings
300 Series Medium-Duty AH Mounted Ball Bearings

Browning medium-duty Air Handling (AH) cast-iron units are ideal for industrial HVAC applications with heavier loads and moderate speeds. The Browning AH 300 Series comes standard with distinct AH housing fit and AH noise testing. AH units also have Browning® mounted ball bearing offer the following features: • auxiliary seal flingers • outer race anti-rotation • semi-solid housing bases, the prevent sheet metal "buckling".

Superior Locking
Superior Locking

Both 200 & 300 Series Browning Air Handling (AH) bearings offer two locking devices that perform exceptionally well for industrial HVAC applications. The first is the 120° setscrew positioning, combined with zone-hardened, wide inner races and diamond faced precision ground setscrews. The other is the all-new BOA concentric, which reduces noise and vibration while achieving higher speeds.

Spherical Roller Bearings
Spherical Roller Bearings

Mounted spherical roller bearing assemblies consist of a sealed and lubricated inch spherical bearing with setscrew or adapter mount locking system. They are combined within a variety of housings types, mounting styles, and housing materials.

Industrial

Typical industrial-duty applications include:

  • Centrifugal blowers
  • In-line​​ centrifugal units
  • Utility fans (large)
  • Cooling towers
