Flange bearings are compact units consisting of a bearing housing and a ball bearing, which are used for the particularly simple bearing of shafts with quick mounting. This type of bearing is used particularly in mechanical engineering, conveyor technology or in plants. Flange bearing units can be mounted easily, quickly and safely through existing holes on the bearing housing. In the MOVET Shop you will find a large selection of flange bearing units made of stainless steel or plastic. With possible shaft diameters ranging from 12 to 60 mm, MOVET flange bearing units cover virtually every application in industry or workshops.
What designs are available for flanged bearings?
In addition to the bearing that is always present, a flanged bearing unit consists of a comparatively flat bearing housing in which the ball bearing is securely mounted. The bearing housing is equipped with holes for fastening to a screw-on surface. Depending on the number of holes, the flanged bearing units are called 2-bolt flange bearings, 3-bolt flange bearings or 4-bolt flange bearings. In addition to these designs, there is also the so-called pillow block. In this type, the shaft is accommodated in a protruding "bulge" of the housing. Another design type that you will also find in the MOVET flanged bearing product range is the so-called take up unit. This type of bearing has a plastic housing that is clamped in a corresponding receptacle via two lateral "wings".
Material for flanged housing
For our MOVET flanged bearing housings, we use either high-quality, stainless steel or thermoplastic materials (PBT). Both the stainless steel flange bearings and our plastic flange bearings are optimally suited for use in hygienically demanding areas, for example in food production. Stainless steel is the material of choice when it comes to particularly smooth surfaces and distinct durability of the components. Stainless steel gives dirt and germs no chance to adhere to the material. This means that the bearing housings remain hygienically clean at all times - and are particularly easy to clean if necessary. Plastic housings are considerably cheaper to buy, but no less hygienic. Please note the permissible temperature ranges for plastic flange bearings in use or alternatively use stainless steel flange bearings.
MOVET Blue: Bearings for hygienic applications in industry
MOVET Blue bearing units are specially designed for hygienic applications in industry, for example food production. MOVET Blue bearing units offer a sealed, grease-filled stainless steel ball bearing lubricated for life and a thermoplastic housing. The housing is coloured blue for optimal visibility. The MOVET Blue bearing units are designed to be food compliant in accordance with EC No. 1935/2004 and may be used without restriction in hygienically demanding environments. Like all MOVET products, our hygiene products are designed for absolute durability and reliability in daily use.
Watertight flanged bearing units
With a waterproof design according to IP69K, the MOVET flanged bearing units from our "Waterproof" category are particularly suitable for use in environments where splash water is to be expected. The waterproof MOVET flanged bearing units consist of a sealed ball bearing made of stainless steel (material 1.4125), which is lubricated for life with a grease filling, and a sealed housing made of either stainless steel or thermoplastic material. The watertight axial flange bearings are used particularly frequently in the food industry - i.e. everywhere where absolute reliability in function and hygienically flawless operation are important.
Accessories for our bearing units
With the right accessories, the use of our MOVET flanged bearing units is significantly extended once again. To protect the sensitive ball bearings, we recommend our precisely fitting cover caps made of high-quality plastic. The cover caps seal the ball bearing and thus protect it from contamination in daily operation. Depending on the application, you can choose between open and closed cover caps. With our range of shaft seals made of NBR plastic, you can additionally protect the flange bearing units. We would be happy to inform you in a personal discussion about the optimum accessories for your MOVET bearing units. Please just give us a call!
