Tapered Roller Bearings
- Uniquely designed to manage both thrust and radial loads on rotating shafts and in housings
- Axial load capacity is largely determined by the contact angle which corresponds to the angle of the raceway. Larger Angle = Larger Axial load capacity.
- The inner and outer rings of taper rollers are designed as separable making the fitting much easier.
The most basic and widely used tapered roller bearing, the single-row tapered roller bearing consists of the cone assembly and the cup. It is usually fitted as one of an opposing pair. During equipment assembly, single-row tapered roller bearings can be set to the required clearance or preload condition to optimize performance.
Double- or two-row tapered roller bearings feature double cups and two single cones. Double- or two-row tapered roller bearings are available in a variety of configurations for general industrial and automotive applications.
Four-row tapered roller bearings combine the inherent high-load, radial/thrust capacity and direct/indirect mounting variables of tapered roller bearings into assemblies of maximum load rating in minimum space.
