End covers

June 12, 2013

Staying in place during aggressive high-pressure washdowns, SKF MRC end covers for Marathon composite or stainless steel bearing housings eliminate exposedEnd Covers shaft ends and promote compliance with health and safety regulations governing the food manufacturing and processing industries; a drain option reduces the risk of increased bacteria counts resulting from internally trapped water. Available in a variety of mounting styles, the covers accommodate shaft diameters from 3/4 to 1 1/2 in. They are mounted by inserting the tabs of the cover into the bearing unit’s housing groove and snapping the tabs in place.
