Below is a complete listing of the type of Bearings we offer. For more information, please request a quote or call 1-800-934-2834
Bearing Distributors, Inc. carries a variety of ball bearings. Single Row Deep Groove Ball Bearings have the highest speed capacity of all rolling element bearings, and are by far the most popular bearing type in use today.
- Bearings are supplied in an open, shielded (ZZ), or sealed (2RS) design.
- Many sizes are also available with a snap ring installed on the bearing’s outer ring.
- Open bearings are supplied with a light oil coating and are used in oil bath and oil misting applications.
- Sealed bearings are supplied with a contacting lip seal that excels in protecting the bearing from liquids and other foreign contaminants. The inherent design creates friction, drag, and in turn heat; factors that require consideration in high speed applications.
- Shielded bearings are provided with non-contacting metal shields that protect against larger particles entering the bearing, but do not protect against liquids. They add no friction during operation and therefore do not generate heat build-up.
Bearing Distributors, Inc. supplies the mounted unit to fit your specific need. We inventory a variety of units ranging from: pillow block bearings, flange units, conveyor hangers, inserts (ball & roller), split housings, and take-up units. Mounted bearings are available in both standard and metric sizes as well as a number of housing materials to include cast iron, stainless, bronze, USDA approved, thermal plastic and non-corrosive bearings. We supply bearings manufactured by several industry leading manufacturers including NTN, Sealmaster, and Browning as well as our own IDC-Select brand.
Tapered Roller Bearings
The angular construction of single row tapered roller bearings provides a high capacity for radial, axial, and combined loads.
Tapered roller bearings are made up of four interdependent components: The inner ring, or cone; the tapered rollers, or rolling elements; the roller retainer, or cage(collectively known as the cone assembly); and an outer race, or cup. They’re designed and manufactured to ensure that their conical rollers and raceways are arranged so that their contact surfaces converge at a common apex on the bearing’s axis. The larger this contact angle the greater the bearing’s loading capacity.
