A rotating measurement finder developed by ABB, dubbed the Bearing Compass, makes the identification of housed bearings straight forward, aiding in the selection of appropriate replacement units. All the common bearing types and designations are listed, with the common references and sizes of standard housed bearings included.
The pillow block housed Bearing Compass features the ABB Dodge Setscrew ball bearings, with the reverse featuring the heavier duty ABB Dodge ISN spherical roller bearings. The ISN bearings feature an easy-on, easy-off adapter sleeve mounting, making them quick to install compared to standard housed bearings.
The second Bearing Compass, features the ABB Dodge 2-bolt and 4-bolt flange housing ball bearings with standard shaft-mount inserts. These are dimensionally identical to standard bearings and are directly interchangeable with most existing housed bearings on the market.
