Spherical Roller Bearings

Spherical Roller Bearings
Spherical roller bearings are designed to accommodate heavy radial and axial loads while allowing for misalignment between the shaft and housing. The design of spherical roller bearings enables them to handle dynamic and shock loads effectively, making them suitable for applications with heavy loads, shaft deflections, or misalignment.

Features and benefits:
  • Low friction
  • High load capacity
  • Misalignment capabilities
  • Suitable for applications that have a large radial load
  • Can carry small amounts of axial loads in both directions

Q: What is the difference between standard and asymmetrical spherical roller bearings?

Standard spherical roller bearings have symmetrical rollers and raceways, while asymmetrical spherical roller bearings have different diameters for the rollers on the front and rear rows. Asymmetrical design enhances load distribution and load-carrying capacity compared to standard bearings.

Q: What are the different clearance levels available for spherical roller bearings?

Spherical roller bearings come in various clearance levels, such as C2, C3, C4, and C5, which indicate the internal play or looseness of the bearing. The clearance choice depends on the specific application requirements and the desired operating conditions.

Q: What is the typical lubrication method for spherical roller bearings?

Spherical roller bearings can be lubricated with grease or oil. Grease is often used in applications with longer re-lubrication intervals, while oil is preferred in high-speed or high-temperature applications.
