Air Bearings and Casters Information - Are Air Bearings
Easy To Replace?
Absolutely. At Hovair Systems we manufacture all our products with the
customer in mind. This means that most individual components are easy to
locate and replace if necessary.
A-type air bearings are fitted to their load modules by a single hex-head
bolt through the load pad and into the load module.
B-type air bearings are usually mounted on an aluminum back plate which
is fitted to the load module via a mounting bolt on each corner. There is
also a center fitting bolt through the load pad.
VL-type air bearings are not replaceable as
they are incorporated directly into their stainless steel modules. In
the event that an air bearing needs to be replaced, simply replace the
Air bearings are also very easy to replace when they are incorporated
into products such as aluminum transporters, air pallets, air beams,
lifting jacks and vehicle turntables etc.
Every product that leaves our factory has an operator's manual that
covers the air bearing replacement process for that product.
