Bower BCA Bearing Types

Bower BCA Tapered Roller Bearings 

Bower BCA Tapered Roller Bearings are well suited for light- to medium-duty applications. 

Features and Benefits of Tapered Roller Bearings–

  • Carburized casing on rings and rollers* 
  • Excellent shock resistance 
  • Up to 40% longer life when compared to through hardened products 
  • High capacity for radial, axial, and combined loads 
  • Applications include transmissions, engines, differentials, wheel end, and transfer cases 

*What is case carburization?

The process of case carburization creates bearings with a hard, wear-resistant exterior shell, and a tough, ductile core. The outer shell helps protect the bearing’s rolling elements from debris, and the ductile core allows the bearing to operate under misalignment without failing while also absorbing any increased shock.
