New Kaydon Data Sheet Features High-Capacity Slewing Bearings
Kaydon, Muskegon, Mich., is featuring its HS Series slewing ring bearings in its new data sheet. Outside diameters range from 20 inches to 47 inches. Most HS sizes are in stock, and forgings are stocked for the rest, says Kaydon. HS Series bearings’ efficient designs provide four-point contact in deep-groove, gothic-arch raceways. HS Series bearings provide load capacities to 139,900 ft-lbs, (about twice the capacity of Kaydon’s RK Series bearings in the same envelope). That makes HS Series bearings ideal for medium- to heavy-duty applications such as cranes, aerial lifts, digger derricks, chute swivels, lift-truck rotators, and industrial turntables.
A rectangular cross-section gives the HS Series even greater stiffness than the lighter RK Series. That reduces distortion and allows lower internal diametral clearance. Kaydon HS bearings are available with internal gearing, external gearing or no gearing. Standard features include two fittings for lubrication and integral seals to protect against contamination.
