Spherical Plain & Roller Bearings

Spherical Roller Bearings: These bearings have two rows of barrel shaped (spherical) rollers which run on a common spherical outer and inner raceway, they are inclined at an angle to the bearings axis. Their design offers many features such as self alignment, insensitivity to misalignment, tolerance to heavy radial and axial loads etc. They are manufactured with in both parallel and tapered bore variants.

Spherical plain bearings: These bearings are appropriate for bearing arrangements where alignment movements between the shaft and housing have to be accommodated, or where oscillating or recurrent tilting must be allowed at comparatively slow sliding speeds.
