Centrifugal pump bearings

October 7, 2003




MRC Bearing Services says its pump bearings enable users to quickly and easily upgrade centrifugal pumps. The 5300UPG series consists of 40 degree double-row angular contact ball bearings and a machined brass cage designed and supplied as drop-in units. The relatively steep contact angle helps to increase thrust capacity and the bearings’ machined brass cage provides longer service life in heavy duty and marginal lubrication conditions, according to the manufacturer.
