For over a hundred years, countless hours have been spent removing setscrew mounted bearings from shafts. Throughout time, burrs that are created from setscrews and fretting corrosion have contributed to difficult bearing removal. The Sealmaster Large Bore Performance Gold Line Mounted Ball Bearings now feature a patented* TIME SAVING axial groove in the inner ring bore to allow for easier bearing removal and ability to reuse the shafting with minimal clean up ‘Saving You Time’.
Time is a valuable commodity in plant operation. With the features of the Time Saving™ Axial Groove bearing, customers are able to reduce total downtime that is required to remove the bearing, saving more than just time.
·Axial groove in the inner ring bore is designed to provide clearance from the burr created when the setscrews are properly torqued to lock the bearing to the shaft.
·Axial Groove extends the entire length of the inner ring for removal in either direction.
·No impact to ball path roundness, load & speed rating, or bearing performance.
