A U2 Bushing is designed for mounting sprockets, sheaves, or pulleys on drive shafts
. It features a solid flange with a split barrel for a tight clamping. The tapered surface on the outer part ensures that the bushing attaches to the shaft. The use of steel, cast iron, or ductile iron materials give the bushing added strength and resistance to corrosion.
The bushing has three cap screw slots and a high wrenching torque that cuts across all the manufacturers. In other words, the clamping tension or load capacity is the same. Also, the standard bore size is 4-1/8 inches, irrespective of the brand you procure. Thanks to standardization, U2 Bushings from one manufacturer can be interchanged with similar products from another maker.
have extensive usage in home appliances, agricultural machinery
, construction and automobile industries. Their wrenching torque is 1680 pounds. Besides, they come with a lifetime warranty with most manufacturers ready to replace in the event of failure.
