YSA Y-bearing units

Optimize air handling bearing performance

The YSA Y-bearing unit is designed for concentric locking, using a standard adapter sleeve. The adapter sleeve locking allows the bearing to operate at higher speeds, run more smoothly and be used even when the direction of rotation alternates.

The axial locking power is much higher using sleeve locking instead of set screw or eccentric locking. It also reduces the risk of bearing failure caused by vibrations and loosening of set screws. The YSA Y-bearing unit provides higher axial holding power and full load support under the bearing load zone. Benefits include:
  • Fewer balancing problems
  • Reduced vibration and noise levels
  • Reduced risk of failures
  • Reduced costs, as standard shafting can be used
