At Simply Bearings, we can assist you with a wide range of bearing requirements and other engineering parts. This includes an extensive selection of spherical roller bearings that are available in a variety of dimensions to meet your individual needs.
Spherical bearings are suitable for use in different engineering applications, including power generation and wind turbines, agricultural machinery, pumps and mining, rail and transportation, steel rolling and transmissions, and marine and shipping. The design of these bearings offers many benefits to the user, such as insensitivity to misalignment, self-alignment, and a tolerance to axial and heavy radial loads.
The spherical roller bearings are manufactured with barrel-shaped rollers in two rows that operate with a common spherical inner and outer raceway. They are available as a tapered or parallel bore option and can be produced using a number of different materials. These bearings don't have an effective kinematic behaviour, so they are only efficient when used at a low or medium speed.
They can be used even in heavy-duty applications, providing reliability and durability where it is needed most. The design of spherical bearings means that they are especially suitable for situations where it's necessary to accommodate alignment movements between the housing and the shaft or if recurrent or oscillating tilting movements are required at a slow sliding speed.
Before purchasing a bearing, it's important to ensure that you are selecting the appropriate size for your specific application. You can measure the bore by using a vernier calliper. This makes it easy to read the individual value, but you can also use a steel ruler if necessary. You will need to measure the actual bore, the outside diameter, and the width to determine the size of the bearing you require.
At Simply Bearings, we have an extensive catalogue of bearings available on our website. Our site is clearly designed and easy to search by either part number or size so you can find exactly what you require. We offer a fast and efficient delivery service so your parts will be with you without any unnecessary delays.
