he FLS range of fully split self aligning bearing units are able to withstand continuous misalignment and oscillating shaft movements. The bushes are self-lubricating and are ideal for applications in which lubrication is not possible or is time consuming and costly. Bush replacement can also be carried out efficiently and with minimum expense. The manufacturing facilities offered by the company enable bushes to be supplied in a variety of materials to suit specific applications. Some information and links to plain bearing materials can be found by visiting the bush materials page.
Criptic Arvis have manufactured a number of split four bolt flanged housings during recent years. As the demand for this style of product has increased a standard FLS range has been produced.
Split units have resulted in minimised down times during replacement or maintenance as the need for shaft removal is eliminated in the majority of applications. This ensures that the units can be fitted without causing disturbance to surrounding parts such as couplings or gearboxes. Bolt hole positions are manufactured to allow the split units to be interchangeable with the standard Exalign four bolt flange.
Self aligning inserts can be manufactured from any commercially available material and infinitely variable bush materials are also available on request. Bushes for the split units can be supplied in materials to suit specific applications. This results in optimum bearing life and performance.
