NTN’s Ultra-Class™ is the original solid base offering in our mounted bearing unit portfolio. As our flagship bearing unit line, it symbolizes our commitment to performance and reliability. Ideal for applications where elements such as dry particle contamination and moisture are of concern, Ultra-Class provides a wealth of features and benefits to address these challenges.
Available in metric and inch sizes, Ultra-Class units are made from heavy-duty, solid-cast housings and robust steel cages for optimal load & shock stability. The Ultra-Class line features pillow blocks, two-bolt and four-bolt flange housings. These units are fully assembled, factory sealed and pre-lubricated for easy installation.
Featuring NTN’s exclusive ball-point set screw design, the Ultra-Class™ black-oxide plated insert provides 120° screw orientation to provide superior alignment and centering compared to typical 90° configurations. The semi-retractable, ball-point mechanism’s excellent tightening torque characteristics allow 7.5x longer set screw retention life vs. cup point set screws, all without damaging to the shaft or mounting surface.
Using a combined elastomeric seal in tandem with NTN’s outer flinger design, each Ultra-Class mounted unit exhibits a fan-like mechanism that keeps particles from getting near the inner ball bearing and raceways, reducing wear and corrosion. Maintenance-free options with solid lubricant and NSF food grade grease are also available.
