Spherical roller bearing has types of EA, C, CD, CA, which are designed for high load capacity, are available. Types EA, C, and CD have pressed steel cages; and type CA has machined brass cages. Type EA has especially high load capacity, features low torque, and has a high-strength cage.
An oil groove and holes are provided in the outer ring to supply lubricant and the bearing numbers are suffixed with E4.
To use bearings with oil grooves and holes, it is recommended to provide an oil groove in the housing bore, since the depth of the groove in the bearing is limited.
Spherical roller bearings with two rows of rollers, the main radial load, but also can withstand any direction of the axial load. Has a high radial load capacity, especially for heavy duty or vibration load, but can not afford pure axial load. This type of bearing outer ring raceway is a spherical shape, so the aligning performance is good, to compensate for coaxial error.
