Bowman International launched a new range of cylindrical split bearings in North America.

According to Bowman, its JHB split bearings do everything original split bearings do while offering significantly more in the way of capacity, flexibility and simplicity of fitting and maintenance. The new bearing design solves applications with high-axial thrust loads, Bowman says, replacing existing split bearing designs as well as spherical and ball bearings. The JHB split bearings can be installed in existing split housings, as well as in SN, SD or SAF and Plumber existing housings.

The major advantage of a split bearing design is that it allows for the replacement of the rolling element without the removal of the motor or drive package, making it a significant time and money saver to end users by reducing downtime, the company adds.

According to the company, the entire split bearing is designed around the bearing cages, which have an increased radial and axial capacity of up to 70 percent and 1,000 percent higher, respectively, than any other split bearing in the world. The capacity increases allow the JHB split bearing to replace three series of split bearings with a single series that covers almost all existing requirements, Bowman adds.

Additionally, Bowman says the JHB split bearing can accommodate axial and radial loads independently. In doing so, the company says the split bearing enables the calculation of an axial L10 life for the first time. This is a capability that was previously impossible and offers a new dimension of flexibility and design freedom, Bowman says.
