Know Your Taper Roller Bearing

Bearings have a host of uses for autos, industry and in aerospace. A taper roller bearing deals with thrust and radial properties and manages loads on rolling shafts. These bearings are usually available in single rows or double and quadruple rows. The type of roller bearing you need depends on the equipment in which it will be installed and the precise function.

Anatomy of a Roller Bearing

A taper roller bearing is usually comprised of the following parts; the internal ring, the cone, the external ring and the cup. Other parts include the rollers, the cage, and the retainer. The angles determine the bearing’s ability to handle radial and thrust loads, with steep angles having a greater capacity to deal with large loads. These types of bearings are often used for work that is low speed but deals with heavy weight. When using the bearings make sure that they are not overly tightened or too loose, because either extreme could wear out the bearings.

The Importance of Quality Bearings

Having the right kind of bearings has a significant impact on work efficiency and the quality of your product or service. With efficient bearings that handle sufficient weight and work smoothly, you and your employees can complete more work in less time than if your bearings are mediocre. This translates into lower labor costs; less time expended on work and repairs, greater effectiveness and consistent customer satisfaction. This, in turn, improves your company’s reputation, helps you drum up more business and creates more revenues.

Storing your Bearings

Many professionals keep their taper roller bearing units in the shop for convenience and easy access. This is feasible if there are sufficient dry, insulated places in the shop that are free of leaks. Delicate parts can become contaminated by materials and can experience corrosion if not stored properly. Make sure that the bearings are free of damage before installation.
