MST bushings are special types of bushings designed to make installation and removal easy. They are made with a split on the barrel and also feature a taper that provides an actual clamp on the shaft. The bushings
are keyed to both hub and shaft to help during blind installations. Because of their unique design, many people prefer them for varying industrial uses. Depending on the application, MST bushings can be used for machine running dry with no lubrication or using supplemental lubrication. Besides, they can be designed using varying materials. Therefore, it is important to factor the nature of your machine and application when selecting the MST bushings. The main advantage of the MST bushing is that they are very easy to install. You can simply follow the instructions to install a completely new one or replace a faulty one. Remember to make sure that the sprockets
are properly aligned by tightening the screws
until they pull tight.
