ABB's Dodge Food Safe ball bearings, the first to achieve IP69 and be warranted against failure due to water ingress, help maintain hygiene standards and extend equipment life ABB has launched Dodge Food Safe mounted ball bearings, which are … [Read more...] about ABB’s new Dodge Food Safe bearings designed for aggressive cleaning
Adapter bearings are used in ball bearing units which consist of a precision wide inner ring bearing assembled into a housing made of cast iron, pressed steel, or rubber. The precision wide inner ring bearings are called y-bearings because their … [Read more...] about What is an adapter bearing (Y-bearings)?
Approximately 27,000 ceramic tiles cover the exterior of the NASA Space Shuttle — a reusable spacecraft that carries astronauts in a low orbit around Earth. Acting as a thermal barrier to the 1650 degrees Celsius generated by atmospheric re-entry, … [Read more...] about Ceramic vs hybrid bearings
Double row angular contact ball bearings correspond in design to two single angular contact ball bearings, but take up less axial space. They can accommodate radial loads as well as axial loads in both directions. They provide stiff bearing … [Read more...] about What are double direction angular contact ball bearings?
Angular contact thrust ball bearings are separable, i.e. the washers and ball and cage assemblies can be mounted independently. Although originally designed to support the rotary tables of drilling rigs, they are also suitable for other applications … [Read more...] about What are angular contact thrust ball bearings?
Cylindrical roller bearings have rolling elements that are completely different from ball bearings; they are cylindrical in shape — creating higher radial load capacity than ball bearings of same size. Advantages: 1. Higher radial load carrying … [Read more...] about Cylindrical roller bearings from TBB Bearing
