A cylindrical roller bearing is a bearing that supports a load by placing rolling components, such as balls or rollers, between two bearing rings known as races. The relative motion of the races causes the sliding and rolling resistance of the rolling parts to be relatively low.
Cylindrical roller bearings, also known as rolling bearings, have line contact between the rollers and raceway and a high radial load capability. They are superior to other types of bearings in terms of their resistance to heavy loads and impact loads. The inner ring and outer ring are separable, making mounting and removing easy. For example, single-row cylindrical roller bearings, the most popular type and separable for easier mounting and dismounting. Although it may not be able to support the radial load of certain applications, other types of cylindrical roller bearings, like double-row and multi-row cylindrical roller bearings, do have greater radial load capacity and are able to transmit axial load in one direction.
FEIKEN cylindrical roller bearings are heat-stabilised up to 150 °C (300 °F).
The factors limiting the permissible operating temperature for cylindrical roller bearings are:
- • The rollers and bearing rings’ dimensional stability
- • The lubricant
- • The cage
- • The seals
Industries that use cylindrical roller bearings:
- • Mining
- • Pumps
- • Petroleum
- • Automotive
- • Agricultural Machinery
- • Steel Production Equipment
