When high speeds or heavy loads cause shaft bending, vibration, and axial loading or movement. Bronze shoulder bushings can provide support for shafts that are perpendicular to the bearing mounting surface. flange bronze bushings which are positioned so that they support the shaft.
Flange Bronze Bushing – Available In Metric And Inch Sizes
Flange bushings are bronze bushings with a “flange” or “shoulder” on one end. The flange serves multiple functions. It can assist in the alignment and mounting of the bearing and help ease the installation of the bearing.
Bronze shoulder bushing featuring a flange that is designed to support a load. Flange bushings are used at lower speeds and lighter loads while still allowing the mating shaft to slide freely within the bushing. Flange bearings are similar to cylindrical sleeve bearings, but have a flange on one end, which acts as a load-bearing surface for axial loads. They are often used in agriculture, aircraft, and automotive applications as well as in appliances, machine tools, and hydraulics.
Gates are an important part of water conservancy and hydropower projects. In order to reduce the support friction of the gate in the opening and closing force, usually use our self-lubricating bearings.
We manufacture standard and custom large flange bushings per client specifications using centrifugal and static casting techniques. It can withstand loads repeatedly for heavy machinery.
Castings up to 35,000 pounds
Lengths of up to 80 inches for centrifugally casting bronze bushing
Outside diameters as large as 150 inches for centrifugally cast parts
No size limit for cast bronze bearing
Bronze shoulder bushings are perfect for hard-wearing applications. They have longer lifespans than brass flange bushings. Additionally, this bushing type better resists shock, impact, wear, and corrosion. To help you determine the best alloy material & size for your application, contact me today!
Bronzeoilless.com’s Shoulder Bushings material options: Aluminum bronze, Tin Bronze, Lead bronze， etc.
How To Measure Flange Bronze Bushing
The flange bushing has 5 distinctive parts. The inner diameter (ID), the outer diameter (OD), the overall length of the bushing (OAL), the flange outer diameter (FLOD), and the flange thickness (FLTH).
Follow the measurement sequence of ID, OD, OAL, FLOD, and FLTH. This will ensure a quick and accurate quotation.
