Schaeffler’s split housing contains a sealed spherical roller bearing.

Schaeffler exhibited a broad array of solutions for conveyors at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023, including the industry’s most complete range of split bearings — encompassing split spherical as well as split cylindrical variants — that allow for quick and easy mounting and dismounting. The company also presented its rapidly expanding lineup of mounted products, including upgraded housing designs — such as the company’s new SAF200 and SAF500WS (wide series) models — with increased breaking loads that enable fast, accurate and easy installation.

To ensure contamination is kept at bay in these applications, Schaeffler displayed a broad array of sealing solutions, including the company’s MaxTAC and SuperTAC taconite seals that fit directly into the labyrinth seal grooves of standard SAF-series housings. Manufactured from high-grade steel, both seals offer a non-contact design that eliminates shaft wear. In addition, MaxTAC and SuperTAC II deliver exceptional speed characteristics and greater misalignment compensation than traditional contact seal designs.
