Buying engineering parts can be time consuming and tiring; however, we aim to make life easier for our customers. Simply Bearings is one of the UK's leading online retailers of bearings, bearing housings and other engineering components. Our large modern warehouse carries stock from a wide range of manufacturers, from internationally-renowned, high-quality names such as SKF to the affordable and reliable EU Budget brand. You can browse through our detailed online catalogue to find the parts and products you need rather than having to search through endless aisles in bricks-and-mortar stores by yourself; what is more, we are almost certain to have the component you require.
We deliver our products to anywhere in the UK free of charge; alternatively, we offer a same day delivery service within the UK on many of our products. We offer our overseas customers very competitive delivery rates and the option to use your preferred delivery service. We know that time is very important to you; therefore, it is also very important to us.
In addition to our range of bearings and housings, we carry the SKF range of rubber seating rings. These products are available in a range of inner diameter (39.8mm to 76.7mm) and outer diameter (47.3mm to 85.3mm) sizes and must be ordered separately from the bearings and inserts.
The primary purpose of rubber seating rings is to provide a cushion or buffer for bearings in pressed steel pillow block or plummer housings. These rings reduce noise and vibration and accommodate small amounts of shaft misalignment or shaft elongation. They are usually placed between the bearing outer ring and the housing bore; in addition, they are occasionally fitted to inset bearing outer rings to allow the support of rollers and to act as a kind of tyre. The rubber seating rings we stock are made of acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR) and have a convex spherical outer diameter. These items can be used at temperatures between -30°C and 100°C.
Once you have chosen the parts you need, you can pay for your order using our secure and user-friendly online checkout system. We accept a range of payment methods, including PayPal, credit or debit cards, and bank transfer. If you are unsure which part you need, or if you have other questions about our products or services, please contact us by phone or email - our friendly, knowledgeable staff will always be happy to help.
