Sealmaster Rod Ends and Spherical Plain Bearings

Sealmaster® two and three piece rod end bearing housing designs have been optimized for overall strength. This housing advantage and variety of outer race materials including brass, steel, DELRIN*, and PTFE liners provide a wide selection of application solutions.

Sealmaster rod end bearings can be joined together or connected with a threaded rod or tube as linkage assemblies for flexibility in motion transfer. In addition Sealmaster rod end bearings can accommodate angular misalignment to provide ease in assembly and smooth motion transfer in a variety of applications.

Sealmaster spherical plain bearings perform a similar function as rod end bearings and must be supported in housing. Sealmaster spherical plain bearings are designed with a variety of outer race materials including steel, heat treated steel, bronze, stainless steel and heat treated stainless steel, for flexibility in a wide variety of application requirements. In addition Sealmaster spherical plain bearings can accommodate angular misalignment to provide ease in assembly and smooth motion transfer in a variety of applications.
