SKF Cooper split bearings

Simple to install, inspect or remove

Split to the shaft bearings disassemble into smaller components easing the tasks of lifting and handling and making assembly or change-out simple in even the most cramped positions. Clearances are pre-set so no on-board adjustment is needed and no specialist fitting tools are required.

Our long experience in the requirements of the marine segment means that the standard product can incorporate a range of customised features to suit individual requirements and specifications. Examples of these are shown in our Z line pedestal unit opposite.

  • Spherical cartridge lubrication allows extra movement to handle flexing of the vessel hull.
  • Flat, solid underside of the pedestal base affords the perfect surface for chocking compounds.
  • Jacking screws enable simple alignment of bearings along the shaft.
  • Inspection holes for in-place measurement of shaft axial position.
  • Tapped holes for temperature and vibration sensors.
