Title
(EN) A HUB CAP FOR A WHEEL BEARING
(FR) CACHE-MOYEU POUR ROULEMENT DE ROUE
Abstract
(EN) A hub cap (10) is fitted to the outer end of a wheel hub (11) containing a wheel bearing (14) to seal the outer end of the hub (11). The hub cap (10) has a cylindrical housing (16) which is provided with a transparent outer end wall (17) to permit the level of lubrication around the bearing (14) to be ascertained visually. The cylindrical housing (16) has an aperture within which a plug (22) is fitted. The plug (22) has a flexible diaphragm (21) which deforms to accommodate pressure changes within the hub cap (10). The hub cap (10) is particularly suitable for wheel bearings of trailers, such as boat trailers.
(FR) L'invention concerne un cache-moyeu (10) monté à l'extrémité extérieure d'un moyeu (11) de roue renfermant un roulement (14) de roue, de manière à assurer la fermeture étanche de l'extrémité extérieure du moyeu (11). Le cache-moyeu (10) comprend un logement cylindrique (16) pourvu d'une paroi (17) d'extrémité extérieure transparente, ce qui permet de vérifier visuellement le niveau de lubrification autour du roulement (14). Le logement cylindrique (16) comporte une ouverture dans laquelle un obturateur (22) est encastré. L'obturateur (22) comporte une membrane souple (21), qui se déforme en fonction des changements de pression à l'intérieur de l'enjoliveur (10). L'enjoliveur (10) est particulièrement adapté aux roulements de roue de remorques, notamment les remorques pour bateaux.
