C&U split cylindrical roller bearings are used when bearing arrangements are difficult to access. They are suitable for use in cases where replacement of non-split bearings would cause excessive downtime.
Tapered roller bearings (TRB)
C&U tapered roller bearings are designed with tapered inner and outer ring raceways and truncated tapered rollers. They accommodate combined loads such as simultaneously acting radial and axial loads. Increased contact angle increases axial load-carrying capacity. Typically, a single row tapered roller bearing is paired with a second tapered roller bearing. Single row TRBs are separable and consist of the roller and cage assembly (cone) and outer ring (cup).
Spherical roller thrust bearings
C&U spherical roller thrust bearings are one-directional axial bearings that can accommodate heavy and fluctuating thrust loads. They are characterized by self-aligning capability and can withstand high axial loads or combined axial and radial loads.
Spherical roller bearings (SRB)
C&U spherical roller bearings have a common sphered outer ring raceway, two rows of rollers and two inner ring raceways inclined at an angle to the bearing axis. SRB are self-aligning and not sensitive to shaft misalignment. They accommodate heavy radial and axial loads in both directions.
Needle roller bearings (NRB)
C&U needle roller bearings are roller bearings with small diameter cylindrical (needle) rollers. This provides a low cross section but maintains a high load-carrying capacity. NRB are especially appropriate where radial space is limited. Various configurations are available including needle roller and cage assemblies, drawn cup NRB, NRB with machined rings, thrust NRB and tappet roller bearings.
Cylindrical roller bearings (CRB)
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. CRB are available in a wide range of bearing tolerances, and are available in single or double row. Available cage materials include steel, brass and synthetic resin.
