This PHSB6 rod end bearing is made of chrome steel, has a female shank with 3/8" right hand threads, and has a 3/8" bore inside diameter. This spherical rod end bearing is suitable for transferring motion between widely separated points. This bearing's female shank is made of chrome steel for durability and resistance to deformity under heavy loads. The bearing has a zerk type grease fitting for lubrication in place. This bearing has a bronze race and hardened, chrome-plated steel ball for strength and resistance to wear and corrosion. This spherical rod end bearing is for use in textile manufacturing equipment, agricultural machinery, and off-road vehicles, among others.
Rolling bearings use rolling elements to maintain the separation between moving parts to reduce rotational friction and support radial and axial loads. These elements can be one of the following types: ball, cylindrical, spherical, barrel, needle, spindle, or tapered. All rolling bearings are open, shielded, or sealed. Sealed bearings are lubricated with oil or grease in the bearing factory, while open and shielded bearings are meant to be lubricated in place, with periodic reapplication of lubrication, based on use. The shield protects the working parts of the bearing from environmental debris that may be introduced and could reduce the ball bearing speed and lifespan. Rolling bearings are used in a range of applications from agricultural machinery to conveying equipment, robotics, dental equipment, elevators, rolling mills, ship rudder shafts, and aggregate crushers, among others.
