This upgrade provides an improved platform for installing RTDs, vibration-monitoring equipment, and pitot-tube oil-sampling ports, and multiple oil sight glasses. In addition, the standard oil sight glass now has an internal stainless-steel reflector for greater oil-level visibility and easier monitoring.
Bearing Housing Design Features*
With these upgrades, customers will have less need for customized bearing housings.
Improved Performance of Spring Retainer Rings
The material for spring retainer rings has been upgraded. With higher tensile and yield strengths, the material offers superior performance for spring retainer rings in LSA–style bearing assemblies.
End Covers and Throwers Redesigned for Better Access to Oil Drain Plug**
End covers and throwers have been reduced in diameter to provide improved access to the oil drain plug. This upgrade allows for safer and more efficient maintenance, as it is no longer necessary to remove the flinger from the pump shaft when draining oil from the bearing housing.
*Excludes 2-15/16“and 11-1/2“shaft sizes, pillow block designs, and reverse bearing arrangement designs.
**2-15/16” and 3-15/16” shaft sizes only.
