By Bearing Manufacturer>Bearing News>What is Tapered Roller Bearing and How to Identify Tapered Roller Bearings Sizes ?2004-2012 Tapered roller bearings sizes are bearings that can take large axial forces (i.e., they are good thrust bearings) as well as being able to sustain large radial forces. The inner and outer ring raceways are segments of cones and the rollers are also made with a taper so that the conical surfaces of the raceways and the roller axes if projected, would all meet at a common point on the main axis of the bearing which have a big difference with Needle Roller Bearings. This conical geometry is used as it gives a larger contact patch, which permits greater loads to be carried than Deep Groove Ball Bearings, while the geometry means that the tangential speeds of the surfaces of each of the rollers are the same as their raceways along the whole length of the contact patch and no differential scrubbing occurs. When a roller slides rather than rolls, it can generate wear at the roller-to-race interface, i.e. the differences in surface speeds creates a scrubbing action. Wear will degenerate the close tolerances normally held in the bearing and can lead to other problems. Much closer to pure rolling can be achieved in a tapered roller bearing and this avoids rapid wear. The rollers are guided by a flange on the inner ring. This stops the rollers from sliding out at high speed due to their momentum. The larger the half angles of these cones the larger the axial force that the bearing can sustain. Tapered roller bearings sizes are separable and have the following components: outer ring, inner ring, and roller assembly (containing the rollers and a cage). The non-separable inner ring and roller assembly is called the cone, and the outer ring is called the cup. Internal clearance is established during mounting by the axial position of the cone relative to the cup. Tapered roller bearings should always be installed and maintained according to the original equipment manufacturer's recommendations. Failure to lubricate, installs, adjust, and maintain these bearings properly can result in shortened bearing life, equipment failure and personal injury. Lily tapered roller bearings sizes come from the factory with a light coat of preservative designed to keep the bearings from rusting. The characteristic is just like Stainless Steel Bearings. It does not provide adequate operating lubrication. The bearings must either be thoroughly greased or immersed in the oil used in oil bath lubrication before assembly. The bearings and lubricant must be kept very clean through the installation process. It is not necessary to remove the preservative coating before installation as long as the bearing is clean. Adjustment of the bearings is critical to achieving the best possible bearing life. As shown in the graph, a slight amount of preload provides maximum life, but it falls off dramatically if too much preload is applied. Many applications recommend a small amount of end play in the final adjustment because preload is hard to measure without equipment specifically designed for that purpose, and that equipment is not normally available in the field. Again, it is most important that the OEM's instructions are followed with regard to bearing adjustment and maintenance.
