Bushings are made to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping force 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 made of steel and is utilized for installation a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It really is flush installed for reduced installation width and has a split taper for a good clamp to shafts. The bushing is made from steel for greater power and shock level of resistance than cast iron. It really is keyed to the shaft to prevent the shaft from rotating in the bushing, in fact it is interchangeable with taper lock bushings from various manufacturers. This taper lock bushing can be used in automobiles, construction devices, agricultural machinery, and kitchen appliances, among others. Bushings are cylindrical parts used to mount pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other components to drive shafts for the transmission of mechanical power. Many bushings are split and have a tapered outside surface area so they’ll clamp to the shaft when tightened against the tapered bore of the powered component. They are made of durable metals such as cast iron and steel. Bushings are found in automobiles, construction apparatus, and machine tools, amongst others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic engine controls.
1. Before installing the bushing, polish the following 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 surfaces could cause improper installation.
Note: Usually do not lubricate mating surfaces.
2. Being careful not to damage bore or hubs, slip shaft into pulley.
3. Slide bushings onto shaft and into hubs. Oil thread stage of arranged screws or thread and under mind of capscrews. Place screws
loosely in the holes that are threaded upon the hub side.
4. Locate shaft in position desired and hands tighten screws in each bushing slightly so 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 trunk for wrench torque.
Avoid extreme wrench torque to avoid damage to the threads. After that make use of 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 reverse side of
the screw. Avoid hammering near to the OD of the bushing to prevent damage. Working toward the split, hammer on bushing on
each side of every screw. After that hammer on each part of the bushing split. Make certain the areas on both sides of the split are even.
Screws is now able to be tightened a little more using the specified torque. Continue doing 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 additional holes with grease to exclude dirt.
Taper-Lock bushings are split through the flange and gradual taper to provide 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-installed design with no protruding parts providing secure locking and elimination of wobble. Furthermore, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are available with an optional Diamond D integral type in well-known sizes for a more precise fit.
Stock sizes obtainable up to 12” shaft diameter
Worldwide acceptance and availability inch and metric bores
Flush Mounting-No Protruding Parts
Diamond D Integral Essential for Added Value and Convenience
Materials obtainable in sintered metal, cast iron, ductile iron, steel and stainless steel
L – Space necessary to tighten bushing or loosen to remove hub with puller using short hex key.
M – Space required to remove bushing using screws as jackscrews – brief hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed required hub diameter is usually for reference only. Severe conditions may necessitate bigger hub and in some instances a slightly smaller hub could be satisfactory. Inquire about particular 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 greatly help provide easy set up and disassembly. A tapered bushing with straight edges uses an internal screw to greatly help drive the bushing in to the shaft, while a split taper has a flange and an integral on the bushing to greatly help provide more drive. Pick up 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 1st two digits represent the utmost 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 total amount of 0.8″
Inch bore sizes are designated with the complete inch accompanied by the fraction. For instance a 1.5″ diameter bore will be 1-1/2. Metric bore sizes are specified with “MM” after the metric dimension. These bushings are easy to install and remove, these bushings suit flush into tapered bushing sprockets and or pulleys. The bushing contacts and wedges inward, gripping the shaft and bore of the sprocket. Bushings have an 8° taper, are made from steel and have a black oxide coating.
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are used to attach pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The long lasting stainless construction is perfect for meals and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are needed to prevent rust.
