Toroidal Roller Bearings | Design Engineering
SKF CARB bearings engineered to withstand tough operating conditions at steel mills.
SKF introduced its self-aligning CARB toroidal roller bearings that are designed for steel mill applications including casters, large electric motors, gearboxes, fans and others where non-locating bearings must be specified. CARB bearings integrate design features from several conventional bearing types to realize optimized capabilities and performance. They can accommodate misalignment (similar to a spherical roller bearing), adjust for axial expansion of a shaft (similar to a cylindrical roller bearing), and maximize load capacity due to long self-guiding rollers (similar to needle roller bearings). In addition, all CARB bearings have been upgraded to the SKF Explorer performance class characterized by high-quality steel and an improved heat treatment process. CARB bearings are offered in a wide range of sizes and can be supplied with specialized seals and cages, as well as custom designs.
