Spherical Roller Bearings

Spherical Roller Bearings


Spherical Bearings, or spherical roller bearings (as opposed to spherical plain bearings), are double row, self-retaining units comprising solid outer rings with a concave raceway, solid inner rings and barrel rollers with cages. The inner rings with cylindrical or tapered bores.

Spherical Roller Bearings work well in industries where angular misalignment of machinery needs to be compensated for, offering a lower friction solution to misaligned rotation. This is necessary in construction and mining machinery in particular, but also for other industries such as steel, paper-making, wind turbines, gearboxes, electric motors and many more.

The symmetrical barrel rollers freely align themselves to the concave outer ring raceway. As a result, shaft deflections and misalignment of the bearing seats are compensated.
