Efficient Gadget: Split Roller Bearings Handle Greater Loads
EP Editorial Staff | March 7, 2013
Cooper Roller Bearings has increased load capacities of many of its split roller bearings to levels higher than any split roller bearings of similar size, with L10 life that is 23% to 135% longer (depending on size).
These new 01E (medium-duty) and 02E (heavy-duty) bearings are fully interchangeable with Cooper’s 01 and 02 Series bearings, yet provide up to 29% more radial capacity and 16% to 90% more axial load capacity. The increased life and capacities are due primarily to changes in internal geometry. Featuring the same superior sealing and energy-efficiency as their counterparts in the 01 and 02 Series, they also share the same exterior dimensions, giving users more capacity in the same space. Rugged brass cages make the 01E and 02E bearings suitable for service underground and in other challenging environments. Typical applications include mining equipment, industrial fans, conveyors and power generation.
