The FYH UCTC205-16 take-up mounted bearing has a cast iron take-up housing, a 1” inside diameter, chrome steel bearings for efficient operation at a wide range of speeds, and is used for applications perpendicular to the shaft axis to provide extra shaft support. The bearing has a dynamic (radial) load rating of 14 kN and a static (axial) load rating of 7.85 kN. The slot for the take-up frame (sold separately) is available in both international and domestic versions. The bearing is secured to the shaft with set screws to prevent slippage and the housing requires two 3/8” bolts (sold separately). This mounted bearing is used primarily to align conveyor tracks and maintain conveyor belt tension.
Mounted bearings combine a bearing mounted inside a housing unit. The bearing housing replaces the need for a casting or weldment to position the bearing securely for reliable operation, and its design determines the type of insert bearing. Insert bearings use rolling elements (ball, cylindrical, spherical, barrel, needle, spindled, or tapered) to maintain the separation between moving parts to reduce rotational friction, and to support radial and axial loads. Available in a variety of materials and mounting configurations, mounted bearings can be one- or two-piece, they can have an extended inner ring and locking device, and they can have seals and end caps that retain lubrication and protect the working parts of the bearing from environmental debris. Mounted bearings support shafts in a variety of mounting configurations (flange block, hanger, pillow block, and take-up block), and are used in a range of applications from light duty shaft guidance on conveyors to road building equipment and crushers.
