Designs and variants

The assortment of CARB toroidal roller bearings matches the assortment of spherical roller bearings. The assortment also includes bearings with a low cross-sectional height to meet the requirements for minimum radial space. The majority of CARB bearings are available with either a cylindrical or tapered bore. Depending on the bearing series, the tapered bore has a taper of either 1:12 (designation suffix K) or 1:30 (designation suffix K30).
The assortment of standard bearings includes:
  • basic design bearings
  • sealed bearings
  • bearings for vibratory applications
CARB bearings listed here constitute the basic SKF assortment and are only part of the total assortment. For applications where the bearings are subjected to unique operating conditions, SKF can customize bearings to meet the needs of that particular application. For example, bearings for:
  • paper mills or coaters in high precision execution
  • very arduous operating conditions, e.g. continuous casters
  • high temperature applications
