Spherical Roller Bearings

What Are Spherical Roller Bearings?

A spherical roller bearing is a type of roller bearing that consists of an outer and inner ring, along with barrel-shaped rollers. This design allows the bearing not only to rotate smoothly but also to handle heavy radial and moderate – high axial loads. This design makes spherical roller bearings ideal for heavy loads, moderate speeds and possibly misalignment.

There are also various other types of roller bearing variants, including sealed designs, single and double-row units, thrust roller bearings, taper roller bearings, and parallel-bore roller bearings. Most of these designs allow movement within a specified angular limit, which varies according to the underlying geometry of the bearing. These bearings offer numerous advantages, depending on the scenario.

At Statewide Bearings, we supply various roller bearings to clients across Australia from the best manufacturers in the business, including Schaeffler (FAG), NSK, and Timken. Don’t hesitate to get in contact with your nearest branch to place an order.

Spherical Roller Bearing FAQs

Spherical roller bearings are used in a variety of applications where there is a need to support high loads, accommodate shaft flexing, and compensate for misalignments.

Spherical roller bearings have the ability to handle tough running conditions. They're ideal in highly demanding environments, with their large contact surface making them relatively insensitive to impact, vibration, and misalignment issues.

Spherical roller bearings and tapered roller bearings are both types of roller bearings, but they have distinct designs and applications that set them apart. Spherical roller bearings have barrel-shaped rollers and can handle higher axial loads and misalignment, making them suitable for heavy-duty applications with shaft deflection. Tapered roller bearings offer efficient support for primarily axial and radial loads in a single direction due to their tapered shape.
