Composite flanged housings
Composite flanged housings are made of leightweight glass fibre reinforced PA6 and have no relubrication feature. For durability, mechanical strength and thermal stability they are reinforced with a "moulded in" steel coil.
To protect the bearing arrangement at the end of a shaft, and to avoid the possibility of an accident caused by an exposed shaft end, composite flanged housings are able to accommodate ECY series end covers (fig. 3). End covers are accessories and must be ordered separately. The designations together with the distance A5 that the end cover protrudes from the housing (fig. 4) are listed in the product tables:
- Square flanged housings for Y-bearings
- Y-bearing square flanged units
- Oval flanged housings for Y-bearings
- Y-bearing oval flanged units
The complete assortment of end covers for Y-bearing housings and units is listed in the product table.
