torque tube bearers

 

TORQUE TUBE BEARERS

Bearers are manufactured from steel or aluminium plate and are made to order to suit your requirements. Steel bearers are manufactured from 2mm and 3mm Z275 galvanised steel strip, aluminium bearers are manufactured from 2mm thick aluminium alloy strip. This alloy strip is extruded with a 4mm edge profile to increase stiffness and reduce twist in the finished component.

 

Bearing inserts may be specified in self lubricating, oil filled, sintered bronze or high performance Delrin

co-polymer. Inserts for 1" bearers may be specified in either material, inserts for ¾” bearers are available in the Delrin option only.

 

The 1” bearer has an internal diameter of 34.50mm and is designed to fit onto a 1” BSP pipe.

The ¾” bearer has an internal diameter of 27.30mm and is designed to fit onto a ¾” BSP pipe.

 

The fixing holes are 7mm diameter.

 

The maximum recommended length varies and depends on how and where the bearer is being fixed and what load it will be carrying.

TWO PIECE EZ FIT BEARER - HINGES AROUND THE TUBE

The EZ fit system provides a labour saving solution to damaged or worn rack & pinion systems. This bearer is designed to be clamped and bolted onto the drive tube while it remains in place. When replacing a single bearer in a long run, the ability to replace one without removing the entire system means the labour time is greatly reduced - in some cases, a task that could take a day can be done in just an hour.

 

The EZ fit bearer is available to fit ¾”, 1” and 1¼” BSP tube.

 

To complement the EZ fit bearer, a two piece EZ fit pinion is also available in the same sizes.

• hardwearing glass / nylon co-polymer
