DISCOVER SKF ROLLER BEARINGS THROUGH PRO SOURCE INDUSTRIAL
SKF ROLLER BEARINGS
Roller bearings are cost-effective and exchangeable machine elements that typically follow national or international dimension standards. Rolling bearings support and guide rotating or oscillating machine elements – such as shafts, axles or wheels – and transfer loads between machine components. They provide high precision and low friction and therefore enable high rotational speeds while reducing noise, heat, energy consumption and wear.
TYPES OF SKF ROLLER BEARINGS:
ProSource supplies a wide assortment of SKF roller bearings and accessories that can meet your specific performance needs.
CARB TOROIDAL ROLLER BEARINGS
CARB toroidal roller bearings are unique. They accommodate misalignment without increased stress levels, while also providing frictionless axial movement within the bearing in the non-locating position in self-aligning bearing arrangements. They can accommodate higher load levels and provide significantly extended service life.
CYLINDRICAL ROLLER BEARINGS
SKF cylindrical roller bearings are available in a wide range of designs, series, variants and sizes. The main design differences are the number of roller rows and the inner/outer ring flanges as well as cage designs and materials.
The bearings can meet the challenges of applications faced with heavy radial loads and high speeds. Accommodating axial displacement (except for bearings with flanges on both the inner and outer rings), they offer high stiffness, low friction and long service life.
Cylindrical roller bearings are also available in sealed or split designs. In sealed bearings, the rollers are protected from contaminants, water and dust, while providing lubricant retention and contaminant exclusion. This provides lower friction and longer service life. Split bearings are intended primarily for bearing arrangements that are difficult to access, such as crankshafts, where they simplify maintenance and replacements.
CYLINDRICAL ROLLER THRUST BEARINGS
SKF cylindrical roller thrust bearings are designed to accommodate heavy axial loads and impact loads. They must not be subjected to any radial load. The bearings are very stiff and require little axial space.
NEEDLE ROLLER BEARINGS
SKF needle roller bearings are bearings with cylindrical rollers that are small in diameter relative to their length. The modified roller/raceway profile prevents stress peaks to extend bearing service life.
SKF supplies needle roller bearings in many different designs, series and in a wide range of sizes, which makes them appropriate for a wide variety of operating conditions and applications.
NEEDLE ROLLER THRUST BEARINGS
SKF needle roller thrust bearings are fitted with a form-stable cage to reliably retain and guide a large number of needle rollers. Needle roller thrust bearings provide a high degree of stiffness within a minimum axial space. In applications where the faces of adjacent machine components can serve as raceways, needle roller thrust bearings take up no more space than a conventional thrust washer.
SKF COOPER SPLIT ROLLER BEARINGS
The design of SKF Cooper split roller bearings makes them beneficial for inaccessible applications where mounting, dismounting and maintenance is a challenge, for example, between the head pulley and gearbox or motor. They are also highly suitable for long shafts which require support at several positions, or on cranked shafts. Split roller bearings can therefore be the ideal solution to reduce machinery maintenance and repair downtime. They are typically mounted in a cartridge that fits into different kinds of housings, building a complete unit.
SKF Cooper split bearing units can be disassembled into smaller components, easing the tasks of lifting and handling and making mounting or replacement simple even in the most cramped and inaccessible conditions. Clearances are pre-set, so there is no requirement for any on-site adjustments or specialized fitting tools.
SPHERICAL ROLLER BEARINGS
Dealing with very heavy radial and axial loads in applications prone to misalignment or shaft deflections? Meet the challenge with SKF spherical roller bearings, whose high load carrying capacity and ability to accommodate misalignment help you obtain low maintenance costs and long bearing service life. SKF invented this bearing type in 1919 and the range is the widest in the industry today – both open and sealed. The assortment includes spherical roller bearings designed for many applications, including wind turbine main shafts, continuous casters, vibratory applications and high-speed applications, as well as bearings with Solid Oil, split bearings, SKF ConCentra roller bearing units, and, for the harshest operating environments, the SKF three-barrier solution.
SPHERICAL ROLLER THRUST BEARINGS
SKF spherical roller thrust bearings have specially designed raceways and asymmetrical rollers. The bearings can accommodate axial loads acting in one direction and simultaneously acting radial loads. The load is transmitted between the raceways via the rollers at an angle to the bearing axis, while the flange guides the rollers.
TAPERED ROLLER BEARINGS
With a wide range of designs to choose from, SKF tapered roller bearings are also customizable to match your specific speed, load, contamination, temperature or vibration conditions.
SKF Tapered roller bearings feature a cup and cone assembly. The cup is comprised of the outer ring and the cone assembly consists of the inner ring, rollers, and cage. This bearing construction accommodates combined loads and provides low friction during operation. By adjusting one single row tapered roller bearing against a second tapered roller bearing and applying a preload, a rigid bearing application can be achieved.
SKF tapered roller bearings are also made for the Explorer class. SKF Explorer combines the expertise in bearing design, tribology, metallurgy, lubrication and manufacturing. SKF Explorer tapered roller bearings are typically used in bearing solutions where there is a need to increase performance, reduce friction or increase power density in applications.
