Baldor boosts performance of favourite Dodge tapered roller bearing

22 July 2011

Baldor has released a new version of the Dodge Type E-Xtra tapered roller bearing featuring high load ratings and an advanced sealing system. Since the first bearing in the Dodge Type E family was introduced in 1938, there has been a process of continuous improvement to meet the needs of industrial customers. This legacy of innovation continues with the introduction of the new Dodge Type E-Xtra bearing, designed with features that ensure premium performance with greater reliability.

Manufactured in the USA, the high-capacity tapered roller bearing insert allows for a combination of radial and thrust loads, yielding the highest load ratings in the industry. Lab tests have proven that the new tapered insert has 13% to 14% ratings increase over the previous insert. The carburised inner ring has also been designed to absorb shock and resist cracking.

The latest Type E-Xtra bearing features the exclusive XTS triple-lip seal, an advanced system that protects against contamination in dusty or wet environments. Plus, oversized dual Springlok collars act as flingers for added seal protection. For extreme conditions, customers may also choose the XTS Plus sealing system, which incorporates the Dodge E-Tect seal kit for extra protection.

Bearings are preassembled, pre-lubricated and are factory adjusted for easy installation. The Type E-Xtra is offered in a variety of configurations for maximum application flexibility. The offering includes two- and four-bolt pillow blocks, flanges, piloted flanges, top angle take-ups, and wide slot take-ups, in a choice of metric and imperial versions that span a total size range from 35 to 180mm and 1-3/16 to 7in depending on the style.
