Features of Taper roller bearings
Sep 28, 2018

Features of Taper roller bearings:

  • Designed usually as dismountable, provided with tapered orbital paths on the outer and inner rings with tapered rollers arranged in the paths

  • High load rating; suitable especially for retaining simultaneously acting large radial and axial forces

  • Allow the retention of axial forces in one direction only; therefore installed in pairs in opposite positions and as close to each other as possible

  • In case of too high loading on the bearing or if axial forces must be retained in both directions, the bearings can be paired (pairs of bearings are delivered in one packing; as the bearings are paired, bearings from different pairs must not be used together)

  • Higher load rating than angular contact ball bearings, however, these types are designed for lower speeds

  • Seating surfaces for tapered roller bearings must be aligned; the permissible tilting angle is 2-4'
