Mill keeps belt conveying on track with locking-collar bearings
A pulp and paper producer overcomes the challenge of pulley bearing collars that wouldn't stay put.
A roller bearing that uses a set screw to secure its collar to a revolving shaft is well-suited to many belt conveying applications. But harsh conditions and around-the-clock use can jar or vibrate the set screw loose, causing various problems. Producers with tough applications may find benefit in a bearing that's secured with more than just a set screw.
