CARBtoroidal Roller Bearings



CARB steroidal roller bearings have one row of long, slightly barrel-shaped symmetrical rollers and torus-shaped raceway profiles. They are non-locating bearings and accommodate exclusively radial loads. CARB bearings are often used to replace the non-locating spherical roller bearing in a locating/non-locating bearing arrangement.

Bearing features

  • Accommodate misalignment: CARB bearings are self-aligning like spherical roller bearings or self-aligning ball bearings.
  • Accommodate axial displacement: CARB bearings compensate for thermal expansion of the shaft like cylindrical or needle roller bearings
  • Wide assortment of dimension series: CARB bearings are available with the same boundary dimensions as corresponding spherical roller bearings, self-aligning ball bearings, cylindrical roller bearings and needle roller bearings
  • Long service life: The special roller profile prevents stress peaks at the roller ends.
  • Low friction: Self-guiding rollers keep friction and frictional heat at low levels.
  • Improved wear resistance: All CARB bearings are upgraded SKF Explorer bearings.
  • Low noise: CARB bearings can reduce noise and vibration levels, for example, in paper machines and fans.
