Four-point contact ball bearings

  • Four point contact ball bearings are radial single row angular contact ball bearings with raceways designed to support axial loads in both directions. For a given axial load, a limited radial load (load ratio) can also be supported.
  • The bearings are separable, i.e. the outer ring with ball and cage assembly can be mounted separately from the two inner ring halves.
    SKF Explorer four-point contact ball bearings have a recessed shoulder on both inner ring halves.
  • This improves oil flow when the bearing is combined with SKF cylindrical roller bearings. In addition, these grooves can also be used to facilitate removal.

Features and Benefits

  1. Angular ball bearing Retainer.
    Double row angular contact ball bearings generally use nylon cage or brass solid cage.
  2. Angular ball bearing Installation precautions.
  3. Double angular contact ball bearing installation should pay attention to, although the bearing can bear two-way axial load, but if one side has a ball loading gap, then should pay attention to not let the main axial load through the side of the gap groove edge.
  4. In the bearing use should pay attention to make without the ball notch side of the raceway to bear the main load.

Loads are defined by their direction. Loads perpendicular to the shaft are called radial loads and loads parallel to the shaft are called axial (thrust) loads.

Successful mounting is critical to the life cycle of your bearing. Proper bearing dismounting can safeguard other machine components and maintenance workers.

  1. The bearing is at the heart of all rotating equipment, and the condition of the bearing often reflects how well a machine is running.
  2. Learn more about bearing damage and bearing failure – and how to prevent it.
