Take-up ball bearing units
SKF take-up ball bearing units consist of an insert bearing and a housing, and are compliant with ISO standards, North American standards, and Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS), as required by many industrial applications. In contrast, take-up units for the SKF Food Line are not compliant with these standards and are therefore considered as not standardized.
The SKF take-up ball bearing unit assortment comprises insert bearing series and designs, with the main differences between the take-up units being the housing design, the locking method onto the shaft, the sealing solution, and the options for end covers and back seals. Explore the variety of take-up units and possible combinations available in the product details below.
Take-up units are typically mounted in take-up frames and are connected by an adjustment screw.
Cast iron material is suitable for most applications.
Grease fitting for relubrication is included – enabling maximized service life under severe operating conditions.
Housings can be ordered as separate products for combination with any SKF insert ball bearing (data table).
Housings are painted with a blue (RAL 5007) water-based alkyd/acryl paint that:
protects the housing in accordance with ISO 12944-2, corrosivity category C2, i.e. exterior atmospheres with low levels of pollution, or interior atmospheres where condensation may occur
