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. 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, according to the company.
The repeatability of the bearings tighter tolerances along with case carburization provides optimum seal and bearing life. 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.
