RENK Side flange-mounted bearings type EF

The EF type is especially suitable for electric machines which do not have their own bearing foundations or the alignment work that goes with them.

• Lower noise levels in comparison to rolling bearings and resistant to loads caused by shocks thanks to low material stresses
• Maintenance-free or low-maintenance and easy to install
• Lubricant film dampens vibrations, impacts, and noise
• Resistant to penetration of dust and shocks
Slide bearings:
• require a small radial installation space and are structurally adaptable (can be integrated as component)
• are suitable for very high speeds
• exhibit practically no wear during fully hydrodynamic continuous operation and with hydrostatic bearings
• are most cost-effective than rolling bearings at large dimensions

Additional Information

Bearing Housing
The finned EF-type housings are made from a high-quality cast iron (EN-GJL-300) and are designed for heavy duty performance. Other materials such as, for instance, nodular cast iron EN-GJS-400-15 or cast steel GS 45 can be supplied by special arrangement.
Bearing Shell
The shells are spherically seated in the housing. They consist of a supporting steel body lined with lead based RENKmetal therm 89/V6.
Both design and manufacture are in accordance with the highest standards required in heavy engineering: trouble- free assembly and long life even under severe operating conditions.
EF-type bearings are mostly equipped with shells with plain cylindrical bore and lubricating oil ring. Shells are available either for self-contained operation (E.NL.) or prepared for external oil circulation (E.ZL.)
