Conveyor Bearings and Bearing Units - February 2018 Photo of the Month

Photo of flange mounted bearing units

Our photo this month shows some of the conveyor bearing units we use in our chain conveyors, CDLR conveyors, and chain transfer conveyors. If you've ever experienced any type of equipment malfunctions due to bearing failure, you'll appreciate our attention to detail when it comes to selecting bearings in our conveyors.  For instance, our competitors use bearings in terminal sprockets that are only pressed into the center of the sprocket.  This design is more likely to result in failure due to the fact that the bearing may eventually slip or work out of the sprocket plate. At Industrial Kinetics, we designed specialty bearings that snap ring retains the idler sprocket to the bearing which ensures that the sprocket cannot slip or work off the bearing.
