We supply both metric and imperial sized taper roller bearings here at Townsend Bearings.
Taper roller bearings are produced by many bearing manufacturers in various designs and sizes for use in many applications. The basic design of a taper roller bearing consists of two main components. The first component is the outer ring, commonly known as the cup. The second component is the inner ring known as the cone, with the rollers set at a slight angle.
Their design makes taper roller bearings particularly suitable for the accommodation of combined radial and axial loads. The construction of a taper roller bearing also means that they can be easily taken apart.
One major characteristic of these bearings is their ability to absorb slight angular misalignment’s between the inner and the outer rings. This is due to the fact that the internal design of the contact between the rollers and the raceways have been modified.
Here at Townsend Bearings we can also supply double row taper roller bearings.
Double row tapered roller bearings are pre-adjusted units normally formed by two inner units and a double outer ring. These bearings are usually greased and fitted with a set of seals and this prevents the entrance of pollutants and the loss of grease. The arrangement of the inner units allows the bearing to withstand large axial and radial loads in two directions. Their axial capacity will depend on the angle of contact of the outer raceway.
