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 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 to Explorer class. SKF Explorer combines our 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.
Features and benefits
- Low friction, noise, and vibration
- Long service life
- Enhanced operational reliability even under difficult conditions
- Running-in period with reduced temperature peaks
- Separable and interchangeable components help to facilitate mounting, dismounting and maintenance
Single row tapered roller bearings are typically used in applications with combined loads. Single row tapered roller bearings can also be used in sets. Single row tapered roller bearings can be matched face-to-face, back-to-back or in tandem to deliver specific advantages depending on operating conditions.
Double row tapered roller bearings are typically used in gearboxes, hoisting equipment, rolling mills and machines in the mining industry.
Four row tapered roller bearings are used almost exclusively in work roll applications such as rolling mills.
