Self-Aligning Ball Bearings



Self-aligning ball bearings have two rows of balls, a common sphered raceway in the outer ring and two deep uninterrupted raceway grooves in the inner ring they are available open or sealed the bearings are insensitive to angular misalignment of the shaft relative to the housing, which can be caused, for example, by shaft deflection.

Bearing features

  • Accommodate static and dynamic misalignment the bearings are self-aligning like spherical roller bearings or CARB bearings.
  • Excellent high-speed performance Self-aligning ball bearings generate less friction than any other type of rolling bearing, which enables them to run cooler even at high speeds.
  • Minimum maintenance Because of low heat generation, the bearing temperature is lower, leading to extended bearing life and maintenance intervals.
  • Low friction Very loose conformity between balls and outer ring keeps friction and frictional heat at low levels.
  • Excellent light load performance Self-aligning ball bearings have low minimum load requirements.
  • Low noise Self-aligning ball bearings can reduce noise and vibration levels, for example, in fans
