Taper Roller Bearings

DUNLOP Single row tapered roller bearings are separable radial bearings, they consist of the inner ring with roller and cage assembly, (cone) and a loose outer ring (cup).

 

As single row tapered roller bearings are only able to accept thrust loads in one direction, therefore they must always be used in pairs where one bearing is adjusted against another, which guides the shaft in the opposite direction.

 

Tapered roller bearings are suitable for both radial and thrust forces, but also accept combined loads and tilting moments. 

 

Tapered roller bearings transfer the loads acting on the bearing at a certain angle, the so called 'contact angle' towards the shaft centre line.The projection lines of the raceways meet at a common point on the bearing axis to provide true rolling and low friction.
