Spherical Roller Bearings
Spherical roller bearings are equipped with an outer ring with a spherical raceway surface and an inner ring which holds two rows of barrel-shaped rolling elements, spherical roller bearings are able to adjust the center alignment to handle inclination of the axle or shaft. There are varieties of bearing types that differ according to internal design. Spherical roller bearings with an inner ring with a tapered bore are denoted with suffix K. The bearing can easily be mounted on a shaft by means of an adapter or withdrawal sleeve. The bearing is capable of supporting heavy loads and is therefore often used in industrial machinery. Cages for these bearings are of both steel (CC) and brass (MB & CA) depending on the applications.
