Roller/Ball Bearings

 

CONVEYOR ROLLER BEARINGS


PUT SIMPLY, WHEN YOU WANT CONVEYOR BEARINGS THAT OUTSHINE THE COMPETITION, CHOOSE MRT BEARINGS, THE HIGHEST QUALITY BEARINGS ON THE MARKET.

MRT succeed in the market by offering a wide selection of bearings that cover a range of applications across industries. We provide roller and ball bearings for most existing conveyor systems, and we keep our prices competitively low, without ever sacrificing on quality.


Roller/Ball Bearings RANGE

Whatever your needs, you will find bearings to suit in the MRT range.

We have:

- Lightweight plastic bearings (in standard grey, black, or blue, or custom colours)

- Stainless-steel ball options

- High load steel bearings

- Standalone pressed steel bearings (standard, thrust, and cone)

For speciality applications, we can manufacture with specialist materials, such as:

 - Acid environments – special plastic housed glass balls

- No-spark applications (e.g. explosives or munitions) – brass rollers and housings

- High or low temperature environments – high and low temperature grease

- Other unique applications – materials including stainless-steel, zinc passivated, or nickel plating 


Polymer Stainless-Steel Roller/Ball Bearings 

Our polymer stainless-steel roller or ball bearings are just one example of the type of high quality, customisable bearings that we offer. These bearings are suited to an environment where corrosion resistance or abrasive sanitation is necessary. 


Roller/Ball Bearings Compatibility

Through intelligent system engineering, our range of conveyor roller bearings and ball bearings now results in over 3,000 possible configurations of rollers, bearings, fittings, and drives.

MRT enables high-quality, low-downtime repair and upgrade capabilities for our customers through the suitability of MRT bearings for most existing conveyor systems.


Quality Roller/Ball Bearings

What sets MRT apart from the competition? Our high-quality components are competitively priced, and include a number of exceptional features, including: 

- BALL CAGE: For reliability and a smooth operating experience, the majority of our bearing races include a cage to positively locate the balls. This feature contributes to the high-quality of our bearings, but is one that many companies overlook in their own component designs.

- DUAL RACE: Increasing the load carrying capability and reliability of our plastic roller/ball bearings, while reducing noise generation, our dual race bearings are the biggest sellers in the plastic bearings range. And with four bearing races for each roller (double that of the competition) it’s easy to see why.

- TIGHT TOLERANCES: Right across the board, MRT Australia is able to boast tighter build tolerances than the general competition.

- BROACHED INNERS: The broached inners of our steel roller and ball bearings cause much greater strength through the creation of a steel bush.

- PRESSED LOCATORS: To improve their smooth and quiet operation, there is a pressed ball locator included within the housing of our steel bearings.

- SEALS: Specify the additional seals that you require, in rubber or alternative materials.
