XT Bushing

XT Bushings are a type of bushing specifically designed for conveyor pulley applications. They are characterized by a 2-inch per foot taper, which provides superior holding power while permitting easier installation and removal than other bushing systems. XT Bushings are also self-locking, which means that they do not require a keyway to prevent them from rotating on the shaft.

Here are some of the benefits of using XT Bushings:

  • Superior holding power
  • Easier installation and removal
  • Self-locking
  • Longer life
  • Increased conveyor performance
  • Reduced costs

XT Bushings are available in a variety of sizes and materials to meet the specific requirements of different applications. They are a popular choice for a wide range of industries, including mining, manufacturing, and food processing.

XT Bushings Advantages:

XT bushings, also known as XTB bushings, are a type of mechanical component used in various industries for power transmission applications. These bushings offer several advantages over traditional bushing designs. Here are some of the key advantages of XT bushings:

1. Easy Installation: XT bushings are designed for quick and easy installation. They typically feature a split design with flanged ends that can be easily assembled and disassembled without the need for special tools. This simplifies the installation process and reduces downtime during equipment maintenance or repairs.

2. High Torque Capacity: XT bushings are engineered to handle high torque loads. They are capable of transmitting significant amounts of power without slippage or loss of efficiency. This makes them suitable for heavy-duty applications where reliable power transmission is crucial.

3. Precise Shaft Positioning: XT bushings ensure precise and accurate shaft positioning. They provide a secure and tight grip on the shaft, minimizing any misalignment or vibration issues. This helps to improve overall equipment performance, reduce wear and tear, and extend the operating life of the machinery.

4. Versatility: XT bushings are highly versatile and compatible with a wide range of shaft sizes and bore diameters. They come in various standard sizes and can accommodate different shaft dimensions, allowing for easy interchangeability and flexibility in equipment design and maintenance.

5. Corrosion Resistance: Many XT bushings are made from high-quality materials that offer excellent corrosion resistance. This makes them suitable for use in challenging environments where exposure to moisture, chemicals, or harsh weather conditions may be a concern. The corrosion resistance helps to maintain the integrity and longevity of the bushing, ensuring optimal performance over time.

XT Bushings Vs Split Taper Bushings:

XT bushings and split taper bushings are two types of mechanical bushings used to mount and secure rotating shafts in place, but they differ in their design and application.

XT bushings are also known as “concentric bushings” and are designed for high-torque and heavy-duty applications. They are made of steel and have a unique design that allows them to be self-centering, meaning that they automatically align with the bore of the sheave or pulley they are mounted on. XT bushings have a flange on one end that is used to secure the bushing to the sheave or pulley with bolts.

, on the other hand, are designed for medium to heavy-duty applications and are made of cast iron or steel. They have a tapered design with a split along their length, which allows them to be easily mounted and removed from the shaft without the need for special tools. Split taper bushings are typically secured to the shaft using a set screw or a locking collar.

When it comes to selecting between XT bushings and split taper bushings, the choice depends on the specific requirements of the application. XT bushings are ideal for high-torque applications that require precise alignment, while split taper bushings are suitable for medium to heavy-duty applications that require easy installation and removal.
