Split double row cylindrical roller bearings
Split double row cylindrical roller bearings (fig 1) were developed for the bearing arrangements of the drive spindles of rolling mills and are supplied in a design appropriate to this application.
The split outer rings are held together after mounting by the housing and, to order, they may be supplied with keys to prevent turning. The inner rings are split at an angle to the bearing axis and are held in position on their seat by clamping rings. The axial internal clearance in the bearing is such that thermal changes in the universal joint spindle length can be accommodated within the bearing.
