Baldor’s New Dodge® Type EXL Bearing Offers Enhanced Features for Increased Reliability
Fort Smith, Ark. – Baldor Electric Company introduces the new Dodge Type EXL tapered roller bearing that provides both misalignment and expansion capability, while maintaining industry standard Type E mounting dimensions. This new design incorporates a cartridge-style inner unit into a split ductile iron housing.
The split-housing design allows the inner unit to swivel freely in the housing allowing up to +/- 4 degrees of static misalignment. Standard Type E products offer virtually no misalignment and are not available in an expansion design. Mounting dimensions are equivalent to any standard Dodge or competitor’s Type E dimensioned product. The totally sealed inner unit incorporates the Dodge XTS triple-lip seal for increased protection in harsh environments. The housing is made from ductile iron for added strength versus cast iron products.
The Type EXL utilizes the new Dodge tapered roller bearings manufactured in Marion, North Carolina. The new bearing design offers a 13% to 14% increase in load ratings over the previous tapered bearing design. The new design is available in both two- and four-bolt pillow blocks and utilizes the same inner unit for both expansion and non-expansion housings. Bore sizes range from 1-3/16 to 5 inches.
The Dodge Type EXL will increase reliability and decrease downtime by offering better sealing, misalignment capability and load ratings versus the competition.
