In industrial operations, one of the most important components when transmitting power from the driving to the driven shaft is the bushings
. These are cylindrical parts for mounting pullers, sprockets or sheaves
. One of the most used types of bushings is the Q3 model that falls in the bigger family of MST bushings
. The Q3 bushing is designed with a split taper, a solid flange, and a barrel split at two points. This makes the bushing easy to mount and disembark. The bushings are keyed to the shaft as well as the drive component to increase the torque capability. The Q3 bushings can be designed with a wide range of materials. Most of them are made using cast iron to increase resistance to wearing and corrosion. However, you can also find others made with stainless steel, cast iron and sintered steel. Q3 bushings are used in a wide range of industries including automobile, material handling, and construction niches. Besides, they are also available in varying sizes.
