FAG Split Spherical Roller Bearings
Are your bearings causing too much downtime? Maybe it’s time to split!
When your machines aren’t running, you’re not making money. Such is the case when it comes time to repair and overhaul your machinery, as these tasks often result in expensive production downtime while your equipment is offline.
Bearing replacement is typically an integral part of these unavoidable yet costly maintenance activities. With standard spherical roller bearings, what usually follows is a complicated replacement procedure involving the removal of gears or couplings, taking off drives and gearboxes and ultimately cutting off the old bearing and frequently stripping the line shafting.
So why prolong the agony?
Consider FAG Split Spherical Roller Bearings instead. Their inner ring, outer ring and cage assemblies are split into halves and held together by bolts for easy assembly, while a cylindrical bore provides direct mounting onto the shaft. Easy peasy!
What about performance?
FAG Split Spherical Roller Bearings offer the same high load-carrying capability as their non-split counterparts and compensate for any dynamic misalignment. Additionally, their internal designs meet the same stringent requirements as traditional non-split bearings, thus ensuring the same ruggedness and reliability.
FAG Split Spherical Roller Bearings: rugged and reliable, yet easier and faster to replace. Perhaps you should split, too! Contact your nearest BDI location for more information about FAG products.
