ABB has launched its Dodge® Safety Mount spherical roller bearings, with a built-in patented locking mechanism that cuts installation time by up to 75% compared to traditional products. Best suited for bulk materials and air handling applications, the new bearing mounts by tightening fasteners instead of using a hammer and other tools. The new system also allows for simple installation and removal from the same side of the bearing, which means only one person is needed for the task.
Safety Mount bearings feature a triple-lip contact seal and corrosion-resistant flinger sealing system, which prevents contamination from entering the product during installation and operation. A labyrinth seal option is available for high speed and high temperature applications. Dodge Safety Mount spherical roller bearings come ready for installation of the ABB AbilityTM Smart Sensor or mounted bearings, a wireless sensor that monitors the health of bearings. Safety Mount spherical roller bearings combine the advantages of the Dodge Imperial family of bearings: they are factory sealed and greased, shaft ready out of the box, and no feeler gauges are required. Safety Mount bearings are offered in split cap and single piece housing options in standard SAF, metric SN, Type E, and Imperial housing dimensions in sizes from 115 mm to 170 mm.
“The new mounting system replaces the blows of a hammer with the tightening of fasteners,” said Jim Madsen, Dodge Mounted Roller Bearing Product Manager at ABB. “It also makes it faster to install large bearings, but more importantly, it makes it safer for the installer.”
