Bearing units FAQs

What is a bearing unit?

A bearing unit, also known as a mounted bearing, is a type of mechanical part used in various machinery and devices. It comprises a bearing housing and a bearing insert, providing a simple and effective bearing arrangement. The bearing unit helps support the shaft that rotates inside the machinery, allowing for the injection of motion between different parts and transmitting energy for mechanical operation. At Acorn Industrial Services, we offer high-quality bearing units designed for reliability and performance.

Why use a bearing unit instead of a standalone bearing?

Bearing units are pre-assembled, ready-to-mount, and often come with a sealing solution, making them a convenient choice. They can accommodate moderate initial misalignment, which is beneficial in applications where precise alignment is challenging to achieve.

How do I install a bearing unit?

Installation of a bearing unit involves securing the unit onto the shaft and housing. It’s important to ensure that the mounting surface is flat and rigid, and the unit is properly aligned. At Acorn Industrial Services, we offer guidance on the installation and maintenance of bearing units.

How do I maintain a bearing unit?

Maintenance of a bearing unit involves regular inspection for wear and tear, proper lubrication, and replacement of the unit when necessary. At Acorn Industrial Services, we provide bearing units that are factory lubricated and pre-sealed, reducing the need for regular maintenance.
