Bearings • Spherical Bearings
Spherical bearings are self-aligning bearings designed to manage high radial loads when misalignment, poor lubrication, contamination, extreme speeds or critical application stresses are present. The bearings are able to handle high loads because they utilize two rows of rollers that are thicker in the middle and thinner at the ends. The bearings also have higher friction than a comparable ball bearing, as different parts of the spherical rollers run at different speeds. Spherical roller bearings can feature brass cage or steel cage, and can be window type or finger type. Some can also handle axial loads.

RBC Bearings manufacturers spherical plain bearings in several series' including standard, high misalignment, angular contact, tapered bore, extended inner ring and groove spherical (enhanced lubrication) bearing designs. These bearing products can be used in high load applications where angular misalignment is required. RBC spherical plain bearings are typically employed in hydraulic cylinder rod ends. All spherical plain bearing types offered by RBC come in both inch and metric sizes.
