Bearings-General bearings-Self aligning spherical roller bearings
Spherical roller bearings have two rows of rollers with a common sphered raceway in the outer ring. The two inner ring raceways are inclined at an angle to the bearing axis. The bearings are self-aligning and consequently insensitive to errors of alignment of the shaft relative to the housing, and to shaft bending. In addition to radial loads, the bearings can also accommodate axial loads acting in both directions.
The bearings are available with cylindrical bore and tapered bore. We supply adapter and withdrawal sleeves which can be used to mount spherical roller bearings with tapered bore on shafts.
