The Timken Company, a supplier of engineered bearings and power transmission products, is expanding its line of housing-mounted units that feature spherical roller bearings and solid-shell units that can be more easily installed in a variety of applications. Installation and removal.


Ke Gong, general manager of Timken Bearings, said, "Timken's spherical roller bearings installed with adapter sleeves and two-bolt solid block bearing housing units are specially designed for harsh environmental conditions." "This kind of bearing housing The mounting units are not only stronger on the outside but smarter on the inside, designed to provide high-performance housing solutions in a variety of sizes and styles.”


Timken spherical roller bearing solid block housing units are available in sizes up to 15 inches (380 mm), including the new TAA Series units, which provide customers with even more convenience. Each TAA Series unit has a dual Bolted tapered adapter sleeves simplify bearing replacement in challenging environments.


TIMKEN has optimized its standard adapter sleeves (with front locking nut) to include a mechanical pull nut on the rear end that is factory set to the nominal shaft size and can be easily adjusted in the field to suit actual conditions if necessary. Shaft size.


Tightening the front lock nut until the rear nut is against the inner ring surface indicates that proper bearing clearance and installation force have been obtained, eliminating the need for measurement of radial internal clearance, helping MRO professionals reduce work time and improve Consistency (Note: Adapter sleeves also accept hydraulic nuts).

For quick disassembly, loosen the front nut so that the rear nut can be tightened and the adapter sleeve is removed from the tapered bearing hole, thus aiding in bearing disassembly. All TAA Series housing units use Timken double row spherical roller bearings to provide superior performance in many types of applications, including power generation and other industries.
