Spherical Roller Bearings

Spherical roller bearings are used in countless industrial applications and are best used where heavy loads, moderate speeds and potential misalignments are present. The design of spherical roller bearings allows for low-friction rotation, while accommodating some angular misalignment. These bearings can support rotating shafts in the bore of the inner ring that may be misaligned in respect to the outer ring. Spherical roller bearings are commonly used in below applications:

  • Gearboxes
  • Pumps
  • Continuous casting machines
  • Material handling
  • Marine propulsion and offshore drilling
  • Mechanical fans and blowers
  • Mining and construction equipment
  • Pulp and paper processing equipment
  • Off-road vehicles
  • Wind turbines
