Split Bearings

Statewide Bearings supplies a huge range of split bearings and housings Australia-wide.

Split roller bearings are designed to reduce downtime, by helping to save time during the installation and maintenance of equipment, machinery and heavy vehicles. They allow for more uniform load distribution, less friction and better corrosion protection.

Where are Split Bearings Used?

Split bearings are mostly used in applications where the load on the bearing is not axial, but instead mostly radial. They can be mounted in any orientation and are typically used when there is not adequate space to accommodate an angular contact or ball bearing arrangement.

Type A: This type has radial load bearings on the outside and an axial load bearing in the centre. They are used for applications where there is a lot of stress, such as turbines or pumps.

Type B: These have one row of balls on both sides with two sets of cages that can be mounted independently from each other. This type of bearing is typically used when there are only a few millimetres of space available on either side.

The main benefit in using split bearings is that it eliminates the need for large mounting spaces and allows wheels to turn more smoothly, with less friction than if both halves were mounted on one side.
