What should be considered when using tapered roller bearings?

To ensure bearing life and reliability, the user must select the tapered roller bearing with appropriate size, accuracy and configuration according to the site of use, operating conditions, load size and environmental conditions.

Application parts: Tapered roller bearings are suitable to bear combined radial and axial loads, which are mainly based on radial loads. Usually, two sets of tapered roller bearings are used in pairs. Mainly used in front and rear wheel hubs, drive bevel gears, differentials, reduction gears and other transmission parts of automobiles.

Allowed RPM: When selecting, it should be noted that with correct installation and good lubrication, the operating RPM of the bearing should not exceed 30% to 50% of the limit RPM of the bearing. In general, 20% of the parameter value of the limit speed is most suitable as the normal working speed of the bearing.




What is the installation process of four row tapered roller bearings?

1. The fit between the inner ring of the four-row tapered roller bearing and the roller pin is generally with gap. When installing, first place the bearing in the storage box and then the storage box in the spigot.

2. The outer ring of the four-row tapered roller bearing and the hole of the bearing box also adopt a dynamic fit. First insert the outer ring A into the bearing housing. The outer ring, the inner ring as well as the inner and outer spacers are factory printed with the symbol. When installed, they must be installed in the bearing housing in the order of letters and symbols. They cannot be replaced arbitrarily to prevent the change of bearing clearance.

3. After all parts are installed into the bearing housing, the inner ring and inner spacer, as well as the outer ring and outer space, are axially close together.

4. Measure the width of the gap between the end face of the outer ring and the cover plate of the bearing housing to determine the thickness of the corresponding seal.
