SKF Explorer four-row tapered roller bearings
Handle combined loads with increased reliability
For increased axial loads four-row bearings can be complemented with a separate two-row tapered roller thrust bearing. The combination can support heavy thrust loads in both directions.
Screw-down bearings are placed beneath adjustment screws to transmit the rolling force into the mill frame. They can be tailored to meet customer requirements in specific applications.
SKF Explorer four-row tapered roller bearings provide optimum stress distribution over the roller/raceway contacts. The four separate cup design and optimized profile 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
