Distributor Bulletin 101


In the mid-1940s Ketchie, Inc. began supplying housed bearing units to industries in the South. In the 60s we added units to our line that major manufacturers considered “obsolete” because of declining usage.  These obsolete housed bearing units were still required to keep your customers’ factories operating.

Ketchie, Inc. fills the supply voids left by the major manufacturers of housed bearing units. We offer he following products:

Shaft Sizes Dimensionally Replaces
1 7/16 thru 2 15/16  Browning®-PB350
  Fafnir® RAKH
  Sealmaster®-MP, SKF-SYM
1 7/16 thru 2 15/16 Fafnir® LSAO & RSAO
  PTC® P2-300
1 7/16 thru 2 15/16 Fafnir® LAO, RAO
1 7/16 thru 2 15/16 Fafnir® LCJO, RCJO
1 15/16 thru 3 15/16 Fafnir® SAOL

We offer a high quality casting. We are using insert bearings from major manufacturers that we stock in most sizes. We welcome an opportunity to quote quantities larger than our available material and to schedule delivery to your forecast requirements.

Distributor Bulletin 102


Previously, Ketchie, Inc., Inc. introduced a new housed unit series that dimensionally replaces Fafnir® SAOL, LAO, LSAO, LCJO, RAO, RSAO and RCJO.

Ketchie, Inc. has been increasing your availability of Heavy Duty Ball Bearing Units. We have added product lines which include nearly 100 Heavy Duty Units. Your support has enabled us to continue to add other new products.

 Since the inception of our Heavy Duty Program we have recognized the need to service our units. Included in this new offering are items which are very difficult to obtain or are not available from competition. All are in stock at Ketchie, Inc. and await your requirements:

 The New and Expanded Ketchie, Inc. Series with Competitors Series Designations are shown below:

Ketchie, Inc. Series Competitors’ Series
HWE - MUS Fafnir® MUOB

 You will note that we have a very complete line of High Temperature Sealed Inserts. These can be used to upgrade performance in many of your customers’ applications. Should you require a high temperature contact type seal (in lieu of a labyrinth seal), simply add a –02 suffix to the Ketchie Part.

 Finally, on the enclosed price sheet, we are pleased to announce the addition of four new low cost two bolt flanged housings which include availability on 14 shaft sizes.

Distributor Bulletin 402


Previously, we announced the addition of 16 series of standard duty units. Our objective was to provide you those units which had either a limited number of suppliers or an odd shaft diameter.

We are now pleased to announce that these units are also available with Triple-Lip Sealed Inserts. Once again, Ketchie, Inc. gives you quick and economic service on items considered to be a nuisance by the larger manufacturers. The series we have added are as follows:

Product Description Upgrades

You can use these units to increase service life for your customers where bearing seal performance is a problem and shaft speeds are relatively slow.
