Bushings are made to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping drive for secure shaft connection.
Available in popular and standard 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 from steel and is used for installation a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It is flush installed for reduced installation width and includes a split taper for a good clamp to shafts. The bushing is made of steel for greater strength and shock level of resistance than cast iron. It really is keyed to the shaft to avoid the shaft from rotating in the bushing, and it is interchangeable with taper lock bushings from different producers. This taper lock bushing can be used in automobiles, construction products, agricultural machinery, and kitchen appliances, amongst others. Bushings are cylindrical parts used to install pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other parts to drive shafts for the tranny of mechanical power. The majority of bushings are split and have a tapered outside surface so they will clamp to the shaft when tightened against the tapered bore of the driven component. They are constructed of durable metals such as cast iron and steel. Bushings are used in automobiles, construction products, and machine tools, among others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic electric motor controls.
1. Before installing the bushing, polish the next 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 remaining on the mating surfaces could cause improper installation.
Note: Usually do not lubricate mating surfaces.
2. Being careful not to harm bore or hubs, slide shaft into pulley.
3. Slide bushings onto shaft and into hubs. Oil thread point of arranged screws or thread and under head 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 only until all screws are very tight. Use a piece of pipe on the wrench to
increase leverage. See desk on the back for wrench torque.
Avoid excessive wrench torque to prevent harm to the threads. After that use a hammer against a heavy metal or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer first next to the screw farthest from the bushing split and then hammer on the bushing opposite side of
the screw. Avoid hammering near to the OD of the bushing to avoid damage. Functioning toward the split, hammer on bushing on
each side of each screw. Then hammer on each side of the bushing split. Make certain the surfaces on both sides of the split are actually.
Screws is now able to be tightened a little more using the specified torque. Repeat this alternate hammering and screw re-tightening
before specified wrench torque no more turns the screws after hammering.
Check to ensure the top on both sides of the split are also. Fill the various other holes with grease to exclude dirt.
Taper-Lock bushings are split through the flange and gradual taper to provide a true clamp fit on the shaft that is the equivalent of a shrink fit.
Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are flangeless for clean, compact application. They are engineered with an 8° taper and a flush-installed design with no protruding parts providing protected locking and elimination of wobble. Furthermore, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings can be found with an optional Diamond D integral type in well-known sizes for a more precise fit.
Stock sizes obtainable up to 12” shaft diameter
Globally acceptance and availability inch and metric bores
Flush Mounting-No Protruding Parts
Diamond D Integral Important for Added Value and Convenience
Materials available 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 – short hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed required hub diameter is usually for reference just. Severe conditions may require larger hub and in some cases a slightly smaller sized hub could be satisfactory. Inquire about specific application.
Use a tapered or QD bushing from Ever-Power with sheaves, pulleys, sprockets and several other power transmission applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings include a completely split design to help provide easy set up and disassembly. A tapered bushing with directly edges uses an interior screw to help drive the bushing into the shaft, while a split taper has a flange and an integral on the bushing to 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 first two digits represent the maximum bore size and the next two digits represent the bushing size. For instance, product number 1008 includes a max bore of just one 1.0″ and a complete amount of 0.8″
In . bore sizes are specified with the whole inch followed by the fraction. For example a 1.5″ diameter bore will be 1-1/2. Metric bore sizes are specified with “MM” following the metric dimension. These bushings are simple to install and remove, these bushings fit 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 of steel and have a black oxide coating.
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are accustomed to attach pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The durable stainless construction is perfect for meals and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are had a need to prevent rust.
