Spherical Roller Bearings

A spherical roller bearing permits rotation with low friction and permits angular misalignment. Typically, these bearings support a rotating shaft in the bore of the inner ring that may be misaligned in respect to the outer ring. Spherical bearings are used in countless industrial applications, where there are heavy loads, moderate speeds and possibly misalignment. Some common applications where spherical roller bearings are used include:

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