Tapered roller bearings

Handle combined loads with increased reliability

The tapered form of the raceways makes these bearings particularly suitable for accommodating combined radial and axial loads. The axial load-carrying capacity of the bearings is determined largely by the contact angle – the larger the angle, the higher the axial load carrying capacity.

SKF tapered roller bearings provide optimum stress distribution over the roller/raceway contacts. The special design of the sliding surfaces of the guide flange and large roller ends promote lubricant film formation in the roller end/flange contacts, providing many operational benefits:
  • Increased operational reliability
  • Reduced sensitivity to misalignment
  • Extended maintenance intervals
  • Reduced operating costs
  • Reduced energy consumption
