XT® Hubs & Bushings

Available on XT®, Tapered Bore or Q-D® Hubs.

xthubs-bushingsA Breakthrough In Conveyor Pulley Design.

The XT® hub and bushing is uniquely designed specifically for conveyor pulleys.

It utilizes a 2-inch per foot taper providing superior holding power while permitting easier installation and removal than other bushing systems.

XT® hub and bushings are available in all of the major types and sizes of Van Gorp® conveyor pulleys.

Van Gorp® conveyor pulleys offer you opportunities for increasing conveyor performance and reducing costs, because they utilize the new XT® computer-designed hub and bushing with all of these outstanding features:

  • Designed specifically for conveyor pulley applications — 2″ per foot taper
  • Malleable iron in many sizes
  • Self-seating — eliminates need for hammer and drift
  • Less axial movement — reduces end disc prestressing
  • High compressive force minimizes pulley walking on shaft
  • Bolts equally spaced for uniform draw-up
  • More material in the barrel for added safety, especially in maximum bore sizes
  • Full length engagement with hub
  • Flange provides for maximum capscrew torque-storing capacity
  • Easy removal
  • Full size keys in maximum bores of size 50 and larger bushings

Benefits of XT Hub & Bushing:

  • XT design was invented by Van Gorp
  • The XT is self-locking
  • This bushing has less axial movement which reduces end disc pre-stress resulting in longer life for the bushing
  • It is designed for pulleys
  • It provides superior holding ability as well as easier installation and easier removal.
