Conveyor Bearings

Mrt bearings are quite simply, much higher quality than most conveyor bearings on the market.

Our range of bearings is designed to suit most existing conveyor systems, and cover a very broad range of applications. The quality is very high, and our prices are very competitive.

Compatibility

The range of bearings is a result of intelligent system engineering, resulting in over 3000 possible configurations for the bearings / rollers / drives / fittings. MRT bearings will suit most existing conveyor systems, providing fast and high quality repair and upgrade capability.

Range

MRT offers a broad range of bearings covering:

- Light weight plastic bearings (Standard colours: Blue, grey & black. Custom colours available)

- High load steel bearings

- Stainless ball options

- Standalone pressed steel bearings: Standard, thrust & cone

 

In addition to this, we can specify specialist materials for unique applications:

- Glass balls in special plastic housings for acid environments

- Brass housings and rollers for no-spark applications e.g. munitions

- Stainless, Nickel plated, Zinc passivated... just ask!

- High and Low Temperature grease

Quality

The quality of MRT components sets them apart from the competition, especially when the price is so competitive. Some of the outstanding features include:

- DUAL RACE: Our biggest selling range of plastic bearings are dual race, which is double the count of most competitors, resulting in each roller having four bearing races. This gives enormous advantages in terms of reliability, load carrying capability and noise generation.

- BALL CAGE: Most of our bearing races include a cage to positively locate the balls. Believe it or not, this is a feature that many competitors leave out. This is another reason our bearings are so reliable and smooth running.

- TIGHT TOLERANCES: Build tolerances are generally tighter than our competition, right across the board. - Broached inners: Our steel bearings have unique broached inners, which creates a steel bush for much greater strength.

- PRESSED LOCATORS: Steel bearings include a pressed ball locator in the housing providing smoother and quieter running.

- SEALS: additional seals can be specified, in rubber and other materials.
