Split Taper Bushings

Split Taper Bushings

The split tapered bushing is a flanged bushing. Split tapered bushings are utilized on sheaves, pulleys, sprockets and gear belt pulleys. The split tapered bushing alleviates the need to have a component bored to size, ideally lowering on hand requirements and allowing for changes in shaft size if necessary. The barrel of the split tapered bushing is split in two places and is keyed to the shaft. The barrel OD is also keyed to the drive component as well. The advantage of the split tapered bushing is it will hold, even if the fasteners become loose. Split tapered bushings are interchangeable between manufacturers.
