Why you should be using a split to the shaft bearing unit
- Easier to maintain – inspection of the bearing components is easier than with a solid bearing and housing assembly.
- Quicker to replace – No time-consuming machine strip down as all components split into two halves, saving hours or days of downtime in some cases. The split bearing is also much easier to work on in a confined space as all components are smaller.
- Longer bearing life – Seals are used on the cartridge rather than the bearing, the split bearing has a more effective way of keeping foreign particles out than a conventional solid, sealed bearing.
