Industrial bearing wheel covers are ideal for a wide range of applications. Typical applications include for use as track wheels and guide rollers, components of conveyors and automation systems, and for general industry.

Each bearing wheel cover assembly includes a cover, snap ring, radial ball bearing, and when specified, a stud for mounting. Standard OD sizes that range from 0.75 to 1.50 inches. The covers are made from polyacetal, nylon, UHMW, PEEK, urethane, steel or stainless steel. Cover material is selected for general use, chemical resistance, abrasion resistance or corrosion resistance, depending on the selection.

The surfaces are flat, crowned or radial to meet a variety of application needs. The steel and stainless steel bearings are retained by a snap ring. The low-profile stud is permanently swaged to replace the need for a nut, bolt and spacer.
