MT. PROSPECT, Ill. NTN Bower
has expanded its line of heavy-duty wheel end bearings for commercial
vehicle applications to now include the pre-adjusted hub bearing sets.
This product line will include sets that range from SET427 to SET432.
According to NTN, Bower wheel end bearings for pre-adjusted hub
applications allow installers to achieve the proper wheel bearing
end-play, eliminating the need for manual bearing adjustment. The
repeatability of the bearings tighter tolerances along with case
carburization provides optimum seal and bearing life, the company says.
Additionally, NTN’s pre-adjusted hub bearing sets enable installers to
re-use the current OE spacer to increase maintenance intervals and
reduce fleet down time, NTN adds.
