Bushings are made to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping drive for secure shaft connection.
Available in popular and regular bore sizes.
Stainless steel bushings are corrosion resistant, preventing rust buildup to improve product life.
This Ever-Power’s size 3030 taper lock bushing with a torque capacity of 24000 in-lbs is constructed of steel and can be used for mounting a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It is flush mounted for reduced installation width and has a split taper for a tight clamp to shafts. The bushing is constructed of steel for greater strength and shock resistance than cast iron. It really is keyed to the shaft to avoid the shaft from rotating in the bushing, in fact it is interchangeable with taper lock bushings from different producers. This taper lock bushing can be used in automobiles, construction tools, agricultural machinery, and home appliances, amongst others. Bushings are cylindrical parts used to attach pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other components to operate a vehicle shafts for the transmitting of mechanical power. Many bushings are split and also have a tapered outside surface so they will clamp to the shaft when tightened against the tapered bore of the driven component. They are constructed of long lasting metals such as for example cast iron and steel. Bushings are found in automobiles, construction tools, and machine tools, amongst others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic motor controls.
1. Before setting up the bushing, polish the next components:
a. Surface of shaft
b. Bore of the bushing
c. Tapered inside diameter of the Taper-Lock hub
d. Tapered outside diameter of the Taper-Lock bushing
Remove all burrs and foreign materials. Any particles left on the mating areas may cause improper installation.
Note: Do not lubricate mating surfaces.
2. Being careful never to damage bore or hubs, slide shaft into pulley.
3. Slide bushings onto shaft and into hubs. Oil thread point of arranged screws or thread and under head of capscrews. Place screws
loosely in the holes that are threaded upon the hub side.
4. Locate shaft constantly in place desired and hands tighten screws in each bushing somewhat to ensure that bushings are snug in hubs.
5. Tighten screws alternately and evenly in one bushing just until all screws are very tight. Use a piece of pipe on the wrench to
increase leverage. See table on the back for wrench torque.
Avoid extreme wrench torque to avoid damage to the threads. Then use a hammer against much metal or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer first beside the screw farthest from the bushing split and hammer on the bushing opposite side of
the screw. Avoid hammering close to the OD of the bushing to prevent damage. Working toward the split, hammer on bushing on
each side of every screw. Then hammer on each side of the bushing split. Make sure the surfaces on both sides of the split are actually.
Screws is now able to be tightened a bit more using the specified torque. Repeat this alternate hammering and screw re-tightening
before specified wrench torque no more turns the screws after hammering.
Check to ensure the surface on both sides of the split are even. Fill the various other holes with grease to exclude dirt.
Taper-Lock bushings are split through the flange and gradual taper to supply a true clamp match on the shaft that is the exact carbon copy of a shrink fit.
Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are flangeless for clean, small application. They are manufactured with an 8° taper and a flush-mounted design without protruding parts providing protected locking and elimination of wobble. Furthermore, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are available with an optional Gemstone D integral key in popular sizes for a far more precise fit.
Stock sizes obtainable up to 12” shaft diameter
Globally acceptance and availability inch and metric bores
Flush Mounting-No Protruding Parts
Diamond D Integral Important for Added Worth and Convenience
Materials available in sintered metal, cast iron, ductile iron, steel and stainless
L – Space necessary to tighten bushing or loosen to eliminate hub with puller using brief hex key.
M – Space required to remove bushing using screws as jackscrews – brief hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed required hub diameter is for reference only. Severe conditions may require bigger hub and in some instances a slightly smaller hub may be satisfactory. Inquire about specific application.
Make use of a tapered or QD bushing from Ever-Power with sheaves, pulleys, sprockets and several other power transmission applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings feature a completely split style to help provide easy installation and disassembly. A tapered bushing with straight edges uses an internal screw to greatly help drive the bushing into the shaft, while a split taper has a flange and a key on the bushing to help provide more drive. Grab the tapered and QD bushings you will need at Ever-Power!
The Taper-Lock bushing size is defiined by 4 digits representing two numbers. The initial two digits represent the maximum bore size and the next two digits represent the bushing size. For instance, product number 1008 has a max bore of 1 1.0″ and a complete length of 0.8″
” bore sizes are specified with the whole inch accompanied by the fraction. For instance a 1.5″ diameter bore would be 1-1/2. Metric bore sizes are specified with “MM” following the metric dimension. These bushings are easy to install and remove, these bushings fit flush into tapered bushing sprockets and or pulleys. The bushing contacts and wedges inward, gripping the shaft and bore of the sprocket. Bushings possess an 8° taper, are made of steel and have a black oxide coating.
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are accustomed to mount pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The durable stainless construction is ideal for food and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are had a need to prevent rust.
