Bronze Sugar Mill Bearings

Sugar Mill Bearings are an exacting component to manufacture. They are a hollow casting which must be hydraulically sound, since the bearings are water cooled. Our company pours these static casings using special no-bake sand molds and foundry techniques based upon years of experience with the bronze alloy, Tiger Bronze. Products for the Sugar Mill industry include Top Roll Top Bearings, Liners, Bottom Roll Quarter Bearings, and Top Mill Roll Bearings. The extensive machining on these bearings is all done in-house, which means from pouring to machining, the product does not leave our plant until it is shipped to you! To Order Sugar Mill Bearings and Other Castings Sugar Mill Bearings may be specified by identifying the make and model number of the machine you are using, and including a part number, if it is available. We will also read your dimensional drawings to produce any casting.
