NTN Bower launches pre-adjusted hub bearing sets

NTN Bower has expanded its line of heavy-duty wheel end bearings for commercial vehicle applications to now include the pre-adjusted hub bearing sets.

This product line will include sets that range from SET427 to SET432. 
According to NTN, Bower wheel end bearings for pre-adjusted hub applications allow installers to achieve the proper wheel bearing end-play, eliminating the need for manual bearing adjustment. The repeatability of the bearings tighter tolerances along with case carburization provides optimum seal and bearing life, the company says. Additionally, NTN’s pre-adjusted hub bearing sets enable installers to re-use the current OE spacer to increase maintenance intervals and reduce fleet down time, NTN adds.
NTN says it is committed to offering the most complete line of Bower wheel bearings to the heavy-duty aftermarket. Features of all Bower wheel bearings include:
· Case carburized steel
· Super-finished rollers and raceways
· Tighter tolerances than traditional wheel end bearings
· Excellent shock resistant properties
· Longer service life
· American-made Bower product
With the availability of the pre-adjusted hub bearing sets and the company's traditional wheel end sets, NTN Bower says it now provides fleets with complete bearing options to serve all wheel end configurations.
