Timken added the Revolvo line to its bearing and power transmission product line-up when it acquired the assets of Revolvo Ltd. late last year.
Revolvo split cylindrical roller bearing housed units are widely used by mining, power generation, food and beverage, pulp and paper, metals, cement, marine and waste-water end users. The units and components are fully interchangeable with most split cylindrical bearing configurations in the market today.
Compared with standard bearings, Revolvo housed units can reduce installation time particularly in tight spaces and trapped locations commonly encountered in such applications as fans, conveyors, long shafts, crushers, kiln drives and marine propulsion shafts. The product’s design accommodates misalignment up to +/-1.5 ° and is available in a number of housing configurations including special pillow blocks, flanged, take-up and hanger assemblies.
The Revolvo line of split-to-the-shaft cylindrical roller bearing housed units means the bearing can be installed without requiring access to the shaft ends. The split design allows the bearing to be assembled around the shaft, which reduces downtime because drive components can remain in place during installation or for maintenance. Revolvo units help extend up-time, reduce maintenance costs and typically increase plant efficiency and profitability.
