One of the most costly and time-consuming elements in an industrial operation is caused by bearing replacement. That’s why Schaeffler’s new FAG Split Cylindrical Roller Bearings are designed specifically to eliminate many of the steps and complications involved in replacing conventional solid bearings. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at how Schaeffler’s new product combines the features of conventional anti-friction cylindrical roller bearings with the added benefit of being easily assembled around a shaft.
Ease of Installation & Inspection
Traditionally, replacing conventional solid bearings can be a complex procedure, as it involves removing gears or couplings, taking off drives and gearboxes, and cutting off the old bearing. Engineered and manufactured in halves, Schaeffler’s new FAG Split Cylindrical Roller Bearings address this issue head-on, as they are designed to be easily installed and inspected, while causing minimal to no disturbance to the other elements of the machine. For this same reason, Schaeffler’s design also eliminates the risk of adjacent equipment damage or re-alignment.
These split cylindrical roller bearings promote ease of installation, as they can be installed with simple, inexpensive hand tools and do not require special machining, which is often needed during the installation of conventional solid bearings. With FAG Split Cylindrical Roller Bearings from Schaeffler, standard straight shafting can be used during installation for ease of mounting and dismounting on a shaft.
Reliability & Long-Lasting Solutions
The design, quality of materials, and manufacturing process of the FAG Split Cylindrical Roller Bearings provide uncompromising reliability and serve as a long-lasting solution. Featuring both versatility and durability, the complete housing assembly is made from powder-coated, high-strength 65-45-12 ductile iron and consists of the housing unit; the cartridge; high-performance, triple labyrinth seals; and the bearing assembly.
The bearing assembly features rolling elements and inner and outer races that are made from through-hardened steel, a high carbon chrome low-alloy steel that provides excellent load bearing strength, wear characteristics, and the ability to withstand impact-load conditions.
Cost-Effective & Efficient Design
Due to the cost-effective and efficient design of Schaeffler’s FAG Split Cylindrical Roller Bearings from Schaeffler, maintenance, downtime, and lost production are greatly reduced throughout the entire life cycle of your machines. This heavily impacts the bottom line of your operation, while providing you with the ultimate peace of mind.
The quality of the materials used and the overall design of these split cylindrical bearings also provide an added layer of personal safety for mechanics who work on your machines. Schaeffler’s FAG Cylindrical Roller Bearings are also interchangeable with many conventional (non-split) roller bearings, as well as most competitors’ split designs.
