Cooling Beds

Cooling beds are crucial to the steel manufacturing process, keeping hot steel moving often under wet and dirty conditions. We have therefore focussed considerable attention and expertise on this important application.

Bespoke design

Cooling bed bearings are housed in grey iron pedestals, but we can also design in nodular iron or steel if increased strength is required.

We are able to create new solutions to meet specific customer requirements, for example with low height to centre and special base bolt centres.

We have also gone as far as making a special bearing and cartridge assembly which lifts the table in order to move the material more efficiently.

Our cooling bed solutions usually incorporate HTP packing or felt seals, and 01 Series bearings.

To find out more about how we can support your specific cooling bed application, please contact us.
