Deep Groove Ball Bearing
Deep groove ball bearings are the most commonly used bearing. They are incredibly versatile in their usage and have many added benefits including low noise and easy maintenance. They are composed of a case and inner ring and a set of steel balls. Both single and double row varieties are available and can be used to withstand pure radial loads, in addition to axial loads. Deep groove ball bearings are a cost effective option when considering production costs and work efficiency. They significantly limit friction and are the best option when it comes to performing under high speeds.
Taper and Roller Bearings
Taper and roller bearings are usually used when large axial forces are manipulated and can also be used to sustain large radial forces. This particular kind of roller bearing is made up of an inner and outer ring, rolling elements, and a cage. This bearing is best for handling thrust loads and comes in single, double and four row versions. A pillow block is utilised to house the bearing and allows for the safe use of both inner and outer components and improved lubrication flow. General applications include power generation, mining, mixing and air handling equipment.
