Baldor (www.baldor.com) has unveiled the latest Dodge Type E-Xtra tapered roller bearing, which comes with advanced sealing system and high load ratings.
Since the launch of the first Dodge Type E bearings in 1938, the range has been continuously improved to meet the changing demands of industrial customers. This innovation is continued with the addition of the newest Dodge Type E-Xtra bearing. It has been specifically designed with features that will ensure optimum performance with outstanding reliability.
The US-made high capacity tapered roller bearing insert permits a combination of thrusts and radial loads, producing the industry’s highest load ratings. Lab tests prove that the latest tapered insert offers 13 percent to 14 percent increase in ratings than the previous insert. It features a carburized inner ring that can resist cracking and absorb shock.
The new bearing comes with XTS triple-lip seal, a state-of-the-art system that protects the bearing from contamination in wet or dusty environments, while the oversized dual Springlok collars serve as flingers for added seal protection. Customers can also opt for the XTS Plus sealing system, which is integrates the Dodge E-Tect seal kit for additional protection, making it suitable for extreme conditions.
For easy installation, the bearings have been pre-lubricated, preassembled and factory adjusted. They are also offered in various configurations, including two- and four-bolt pillow blocks, piloted flanges, flanges, wide slot take-ups and top angle take-ups. They are also available in imperial and metric versions.
