Features and benefits

FNL flanged housings have the following features and benefits:

Simple mounting

To simplify mounting and make alignment more accurate, lines cast into the housing flange indicate the centre of the housing bore. Dimples indicate the position for dowel pins (fig. 1).

Grease guiding system

An integrated flange guides grease from the grease fitting into the bearing (fig. 2).

Low friction seals

A low friction, double-lip seal on each side of the housing keeps grease in and contaminants out (fig. 3). These seals allow rotational speeds twice that of traditional felt seals.

Drilled holes for relubrication

FNL housings have two predrilled holes for relubrication. One is centered and enables relubrication via a lubrication feature in the bearing. The other is offset and enables relubrication from the side.
