POBCO Roller Bearings

POBCO Conveyor Rollers POBCO manufactures a wide variety of ROLLERS. POBCO rollers are used extensively on conveyors and other equipment in standard and custom designs. Our rollers are designed and engineered to provide superior service in the complex field of material handling.

The life of a roller is extended by utilizing the largest possible diameter with the shortest possible length to minimize roller deflection. Important dimensional factors governing roller specifications must be taken into consideration, such as the maximum load and speeds to be encountered.

The following summary of POBCO roller components, materials and bearings will assist in designing rollers to meet your engineering requirements.

POBCO ROLL END BEARINGS

The bearing is the heart of any roller assembly. POBCO non-metallic bearings often surpass the average life expected of commercial ball bearings, especially in corrosive, abrasive and wet environments.

For drive conveyor systems POBCO offers a variety of self-lubricating roll end bearing materials.

For GRAVITY CONVEYOR SYSTEMS POBCO offers plastic BALL BEARINGS incorporating the use of precision stainless steel balls. This bearing was developed realizing momentum of the conveyor system must be maintained depending upon the weight of the product being motivated. However, in many gravity conveyor applications our direct-journal-contact self-lubricating bearings (as used on drive conveyor systems) provide sufficient roller momentum.
