The Timken Company, a manufacturer of bearings and power transmission products, expanded its line of mounted bearings with spherical roller bearing solid-block housed units.

“Timken spherical roller bearing solid-block housed units with double-nut adapters are designed for tough conditions without being hard to use,” says Cory Shaw, Timken general manager, housed unit bearings. “Not only are our mounted units stronger on the outside, but they are also smarter on the inside. We design our units to provide high performance, real world maintenance solutions in a wide range of sizes and styles.”

Timken spherical roller bearing solid-block housed units now come in sizes up to 15 in., including new TAA Series units. Inside each TAA Series unit is a double-nut, tapered adapter sleeve that simplifies bearing replacements in challenging environments, the company explains.

Timken modified its standard adapter sleeve, with front lock nut, to include a mechanical withdrawal nut on the back end that is factory set for nominal shaft sizes and, if necessary, can be adjusted in the field to accommodate actual shaft size.

All TAA Series housed units use a Timken double-row spherical roller bearing to deliver performance in many types of applications including mining, steel processing, bulk handling, power generation, forest products and cement. Other key features include:

• Loading capacity does not change regardless of housing orientation
• Ability to handle up to 1.5 degrees of misalignment
• Rigid one-piece, cast-steel housing withstands shock loads and the impact of falling debris
• Contact and non-contact primary seal options for enhanced protection
• Optional secondary sealing covers available for all standard units.
• Easy in-field conversion from fixed to floating with one rotation of the retaining nut
• Each unit is assembled-to-order
