PACKRYT® LINESHAFT BEARINGS
Any shaft utilizing a steady bushing for support, whether vertical or horizontal, is a candidate for a SealRyt® Lineshaft bearing. These locations can be found inside tanks on agitator shafts, vertical pump columns, auger screw supports, powder blade mixers, marine drive shafts and so on.
OEM bushings are supplied of many materials with normal clearances of .015” to .020”. These materials tend to wear rapidly, the clearances open, and the shaft is no longer steadied.
The SealRyt® Corporation manufactures bearings to replace these OEM bushings with much closer clearances, each one built to specific customer-supplied dimensions and each designed to greatly extend service life and optimize the application. Depending on the holding mechanism, the SealRyt® Lineshaft Bearings can be held in place with anti-rotation pins, shrunk or press fit, or end caps. All these methods are designed into our bearings reflective of holder requirements.
The use of SealRyt® Lineshaft Bearings , by centering the shaft and keeping it there, optimizes the delivery end of the equipment, whether props, impellers, blades or flights. Further, this long-term stabilization minimizes wear and tear on the outside roller bearing support systems.
