C&U Bearings for Pumps & Compressors

C&U engineers and manufactures a wide range of bearings for use in pump and compressor applications. We rely on state-of-the-art manufacturing and stringent QC in order to ensure that every bearing we produce for pump and compressor applications meets or exeeds our customers needs and specifications.

Angular contact bearings

Angular contact ball bearings are designed to support high radial-axial loads at high speeds. C&U angular contact bearings are manufactured using the highest-quality materials for maximum durability and life cycle. Advanced technologies help ensure close tolerances (even at high speeds), quiet operation, and minimal friction and wear. Because of this, C&U Bearings are ideal for high-performance applications in a variety of pump applications.

Cylindrical roller bearings

Ideal for high speeds, high temperatures, and high load capacity (primarily radial), C&U cylindrical roller bearings are engineered to minimize friction and increase performance and life cycle. They are available in a wide range of bearing tolerances and single and double row configurations.  Available cage materials include steel sheet (pressed cage, Z shape), copper alloy cut cages, pin cages, and synthetic resin-formed cages, they are well-suited to a variety of pump applications.

Double row angular contact bearings

Double row angular contact bearings support radial and bi-directional axial loads, though generally possess a lower load capacity than two single-row angular contact bearings. However, their operating life is longer, especially when used in axial load conditions. C&U double-row angular contact bearings are built for durability, optimized to reduce friction and increase tolerances, and are commonly utilized in a variety of pump applications.

Hybrid ceramic ball bearings

C&U hybrid ceramic ball bearings are engineered to maximize the benefits of ceramic ball and steel bearing construction to insulate against and eliminate the risk of electrical erosion, creating the ultimate in durability, life cycle and performance. Hybrid ceramic bearings provide longer service life than all-steel bearings in most applications. They also generate less vibration than all-steel bearings. This reduces noise levels during operation and delivers an important design advantage for compressor and pump applications.

Magnetic clutch bearings

Magnetic clutch bearings are double angular contact ball bearings with an outer and inner ring. C&U magnetic clutch bearings are precision engineered and manufactured using advanced materials and technologies. This enables them to withstand high speeds and extreme temperatures while ensuring maximum performance and durability in pump applications.

Spherical roller bearings

Spherical roller bearings are designed to function in the most severe conditions. C&U spherical roller bearings are engineered to maximize the spherical roller bearing’s ability to support high load capacity, compensate for severe shaft misalignment, absorb heavy shocks, and withstand high temperatures. C&U spherical roller bearings meet ISO 15 standards and are used in pumps for a wide variety of industries and applications.

Single row deep grove ball bearings

Single row deep groove bearings are the most commonly used type of roller bearing worldwide. Versatility and performance are among their most appealing features. C&U single row deep groove ball bearings maximize these features, enabling superior performance at very high speeds. They provide support for significant radial loads and moderate axial loads (in both directions). C&U single row deep groove bearings’ advanced design also makes them exceptionally quiet during operation, highly durable, and virtually maintenance free in most pump applications.

Tapered roller bearings

Tapered bearings are equipped with truncated cone-shape rollers and fall into three types: small-cone angle, mid-cone angle, and large-cone angle. The larger the contact angle, the larger the axial load capacity. C&U tapered roller bearings are used in a wide variety of applications and are designed to absorb force and maintain shaft alignment. They are built to run quietly and accurately, minimize friction, excel at high speeds, and provide long service life in pump applications.

Precision bearings

Precision bearings are essential in applications where high speed can improve machine efficiency.  C&U has developed world-class, high-precision angular contact ball bearings and cylindrical roller bearings. We manufacture more than 100 bearing types ranging from inner diameters of 10mm to 200mm. Many C&U precision bearings are specifically engineered for use in pumps and air compressors.
