Tips For Installing Dodge Bearings In Equipment

Tips For Installing Dodge Bearings In Equipment
In many Texas industries, Dodge Imperial and ISAF bearings are used in a wide range of different types of equipment, systems, and machines. Extremely durable and built to last, Baldor-Dodge bearings are seen as the go-to option for many applications. Over time, and particularly in heavy duty or continual use types of applications, it will be necessary to replace the bearings. When this happens, there are a few simple steps to take to make quick work of the job. All of the imperial Dodge bearings have an integral adapter. Installed screws are found on the lock plate, and these unique components allow easy removal of the adapter sleeve as needed. First Steps The first step in installing Dodge bearings, with the non-expansion bearing installed first, is to remove the lock plate by turning the screws counter clockwise. This releases the bearing and allows it is slide on the shaft. Always take the time to verify the shaft is straight and free from any debris or material and is the size required for the system. Rotate the locknut counterclockwise by hand while keeping the adapter sleeve in place, typically one or two turns. This creates additional space for the adaptor sleeve to slide easily over the shaft. Mounting the Bearing Slide the bearing on the shaft to the desired location. This should be easy to do and should not require any force. If there is resistance, rotate the locknut another one to two turns and try again. Once in place, tighten the locknut by hand to pull the sleeve into full contact with the shaft. This will take several turns by hand to find the zero-reference point. Mark on the fact of the locknut where the adaptor sleeve is positioned at the zero reference point. Use the instruction manual to find the correct rotation of the locknut using a spanner and hammer. Once correctly adjusted, replace the lock plate and the screws, and then bolt the pillow block in place. Be the first to like. Like...

The Versatility Of ABB Flow Meters

The Versatility Of ABB Flow Meters
Within any industry, there are manufacturers of essential parts and components that are immediately recognized as a top company to consider. When it comes to measuring the flow of any type of liquid, gas, semi-solid, slurry or other materials through a system, ABB flow meters have a top reputation. These meters are found in small and large processing plants around the world. The company has been in business for over a century, and they offer a full line of flow meters including magnetic, Coriolis, multiphase, Vortex and thermal mass flowmeters. Each meter is designed to be reliable and durable, offering specific features and functions necessary for optimal measurement in even difficult operating conditions. Built for Specific Applications There are specific ABB flow meters designed for each type of application and measurement requirement. For engineering and design teams, as well as for contractors responsible for building, retrofitting or repairing systems, this makes the job of finding the right flowmeter a matter of comparing options and considering the factors. Knowing the type of media in the system as well as the variables to the system will be essential in narrowing down the choices. Temperature, pressure and the nature of the media will all need to be considered when making a choice. Specific applications such as food and beverage production and processing or manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industries require the addition of flowmeters designed to meet all applicable standards. These types of flowmeters are designed to be hygienic, easy to clean using standard industry processes, and also developed to withstand temperature and pressure requirements of different processing systems. In addition to the design, ABB flow meters also offer a range of cutting-edge technology and features. With built-in diagnostics and self-testing capacity, these are the most accurate, dependable and reliable flow meters on the market. Be the first to like. Like...
