CARB toroidal roller bearings

For applications such as Z-drives, rudders and auxiliary machinery

CARB toroidal roller bearings are characterized by their self-aligning ability, high load-carrying capacity and unconstrained axial displacement ability. They are designed to accommodate radial loads and are widely used for electrical pods, thrusters, gearboxes, and shaft lines.

A CARB bearing in combination with a spherical roller bearing to accommodate axial loads constitutes a very efficient bearing arrangement to eliminate the influence of shaft contraction or elongation due to temperature fluctuations.

All CARB toroidal roller bearings are made to the SKF Explorer specifications, providing:
  • Very high radial load-carrying capacity
  • Highly wear-resistant bearing material
  • Very high running accuracy
  • Low friction

SKF Explorer performance class upgrade

All CARB toroidal roller bearings have been upgraded to the new SKF Explorer performance class specifications, featuring a combination of high-quality steel and an improved heat treatment process. The result: a superior balance between hardness and toughness, enabling up to twice the service life as the original SKF Explorer. Benefits of use include:
  • Increased uptime
  • Improved reliability
  • Resistance to contamination
  • Higher levels of productivity
  • Reduced noise and vibration levels
  • Excellent wear resistance
