NSK Agri Disc Hubs offer reliability in extreme conditions
For bearings deployed in the agriculture sector there is no shortage of potential hazards, including moisture, soil dust, corrosive fertilisers and very high shock loads (such as those generated by stone chipping). However, the robust bearing design and highly effective sealing of NSK Agri Disc Hubs makes them a proven choice in extreme operating conditions. Manufactured in Germany, these innovative units are a popular choice for common farming implements such as short disc harrows, seed drills and flail mowers.
Extremely harsh working conditions, along with high-pressure washing routines, place a raft of demands on the bearings and seals found in equipment for the agriculture industry. A low-quality bearing will not be sufficiently robust in its design or performance levels to provide the uptime necessary for reliable and productive operation. Instead, frequent downtime and costly failures will be the likely result.
NSK’s solution to this challenge is the Agri Disc Hub, a cost-effective, self-lubricating bearing unit that delivers a number of major benefits to users of farming implements. High-performance Agri Disc Hubs feature double-row angular-contact ball bearings that can support high axial and radial loads, while the meticulously devised configuration locates the bearings within a sturdy housing that connects directly (and simply) to the implement via an integrated flange.
