Tension Bushes

Tension Bushes

Spring Steel Bearing Bushes for heavy duty application have a proven record of success over many years with the capacity to adapt even to worn housings. They are well suited to high impact installations giving a wear life and performance ahead of normal expectancy.

Applications are many and include:

  • High Pressure Transmission
  • Hazardous Environments
  • Salvage Operations
  • Conveying Systems

With sizes ranging from 10 to 200mm diameter and material thickness 2 to 12mm it is easy to see that most applications can be catered for.

Our factory in Germany has been developing this product since 1960 and the baseline standard DIN1698 has been added to in many ways, e.g closed joints, oil grooved, extra hardness, ground finishes and numerous customer specific elements.

Hardened high carbon steel is the norm for production but stainless steel is occasionally specified and accommodated.

Specification is by:

  • Bush type – e.g. Straight slot/oil grooved
  • Housing diameter/pin diameter x length

Because we have history in this product we are able to offer many popular sizes from stock, with new production normally in the order of a few weeks and of course we hold extra stocks where projected demand is known.

We offer the following Tension Bushes:

  • Inner Tension Bushes – DIN1498
  • Inner Tension Bushes with Closed Joint/with Closed Joint & Thrust Pads/with special tolerance
  • Outer Tension Bushes – DIN1499
