How To Install A Baldor Dodge ISAF Roller Bearing

Picture for category How To Install A Baldor Dodge ISAF Roller Bearing

The Baldor-Dodge hydraulic ISAF mounted spherical roller bearing is a heavy-duty, large-bore plummer block bearing with a patented, integral hydraulic adapter-mounted installation and removal system that makes this bearing easy to mount and dismount. Standard SAF bearings with all of their pieces and parts are cumbersome and time-consuming to install, often resulting in improper bearing clearance, which leads to reduced bearing life.

May 1987, CBT (then known as Cincinnati Belting & Transmission) featured our partnership with Lovejoy in our monthly newsletter. The page displayed an ad for Lovejoy's Deltaflex couplings:

With the help of a Deltaflex coupling, even badly misaligned components can deliver the same efficiency and performance as perfectly aligned ones do. And it's all because of Deltaflex's unique, double engaging flex link patented design. It allows Deltaflex to accommodate substantially greater angular (six degrees), parallel, and axial shaft misalignment with no vibration, backlash, or heavy reaction loads on shaft bearings.

What to Consider When Choosing a Motor Enclosure

Picture for category What to Consider When Choosing a Motor Enclosure

You’ve configured the perfect speed, horsepower, and power supply for your motor’s application. Have you thought about your motor enclosure? Motor enclosures not only house the motor’s moving components, but also provide protection for the motor. The right enclosure ensures optimal performance and reliability. It also helps protect your employees from the motor. In addition to the size and configuration of the motor, the environment, cooing method, and industry codes may influence the type of motor enclosure necessary for your application.
