The bearings used in SKF ConCentra roller bearing units are upgraded SKF Explorer spherical roller bearings in the 222 series. The stepped sleeve has inclined serrations that match the profile of the bearing bore. The bearing unit also contains a mounting collar, washer, back-up collar and wave spring. The mounting collar is equipped with grub (set) screws that are positioned at an angle (not horizontal) to facilitate mounting and dismounting (fig. 4).
