CARB toroidal roller bearings
CARB bearings are self-aligning like spherical roller bearings or self-aligning ball bearings (fig. 2).
Accommodate axial displacement
CARB bearings compensate for thermal expansion of the shaft like cylindrical or needle roller bearings (fig. 3).
Wide assortment of dimension series
CARB bearings are available with the same boundary dimensions as corresponding spherical roller bearings, self-aligning ball bearings, cylindrical roller bearings and needle roller bearings (fig. 4)
Long service life
The special roller profile prevents stress peaks at the roller ends (fig. 5).
Self-guiding rollers keep friction and frictional heat at low levels (fig. 6).
Improved wear resistance
The complete standard assortment is of the upgraded SKF Explorer class.
CARB bearings can reduce noise and vibration levels, for example, in paper machines and fans.
Long bearing system lifefig. 7). With a CARB bearing in the non-locating position, there are no internally induced axial forces, which results in multiple benefits:
- Less load extends the service life.
- The bearings run cooler, the lubricant lasts longer and maintenance intervals can be extended.
- Noise and vibration levels can be reduced.
