Stainless steel bushings are corrosion resistant, stopping 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 utilized for mounting a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It is flush mounted 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 resistance than cast iron. It really is keyed to the shaft to avoid the shaft from rotating in the bushing, in fact it is interchangeable with taper lock bushings from various producers. This taper lock bushing is used in automobiles, construction apparatus, agricultural machinery, and home appliances, among others. Bushings are cylindrical parts used to attach pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other elements to drive shafts for the transmission of mechanical power. Most 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 driven component. They are made of durable metals such as cast iron and metal. Bushings are found in automobiles, construction products, and machine tools, among others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic electric motor controls.
1. Before setting up 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 material. Any particles still left on the mating areas may cause improper installation.
Note: Do not lubricate mating surfaces.
2. Being careful never to harm bore or hubs, slip shaft into pulley.
3. Slide bushings onto shaft and into hubs. Oil thread stage of set screws or thread and under mind of capscrews. Place screws
loosely in the holes that are threaded on the hub side.
4. Locate shaft constantly in place desired and hand tighten screws in each bushing slightly so that bushings are snug in hubs.
5. Tighten screws alternately and evenly in a single bushing only until all screws are very tight. Use a bit of pipe on the wrench to
increase leverage. See table 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 opposing side of
the screw. Avoid hammering close to the OD of the bushing to prevent damage. Working toward the split, hammer on bushing on
each side of each screw. After that hammer on each side of the bushing split. Make sure the areas on both sides of the split are even.
Screws is now able to be tightened a bit more using the specified torque. Continue doing this alternate hammering and screw re-tightening
before specified wrench torque no longer turns the screws after hammering.
Check to make sure the top on both sides of the split are actually. 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 this is the exact carbon copy 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 without protruding parts providing protected locking and elimination of wobble. In addition, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings can be found with an optional Gemstone D integral key in popular sizes for a far more precise fit.
Stock sizes offered 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 steel, cast iron, ductile iron, steel and stainless
L – Space required to tighten bushing or loosen to remove hub with puller using short hex key.
M – Space necessary to remove bushing using screws as jackscrews – short hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed required hub diameter is certainly for reference only. 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 greatly help provide easy installation and disassembly. A tapered bushing with straight edges uses an internal screw to help drive the bushing in to the shaft, while a split taper has a flange and a key 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 length. For example, product number 1008 includes a max bore of just one 1.0″ and a complete length of 0.8″
” bore sizes are designated with the complete 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 easy 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 come with a black oxide coating.
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are used to install pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The durable stainless construction is ideal for meals and beverage applications or where non-corrosive sprockets are needed to prevent rust.
