Spherical Roller Bearings consist of two rows of rollers with a common spherical raceway in the roller bearing outer ring and two inner ring raceways inclined at an angle to the spherical roller bearing axis.
Spherical roller bearings have a fantastic combination of design features, making them irreplaceable in many demanding applications.
Spherical roller bearing are self-aligning and therefore don't require the shaft to be aligned 100% relative to the bearing housing and are less prone to shaft deflection or bending. Spherical roller bearings are also very robust. The two rows of rollers make the bearings able to carry heavy loads.
Invented by SKF and refined over the years, the present range of spherical roller bearings includes a wide range of sizes of several ISO Dimension Series and also includes special designs, for example, for vibrating screens and similar applications.
