Bearings take steel mill heat

Self-guiding rollers.


04SKFsteelmillSKF’s spherical roller and CARB toroidal bearings handle the axial expansion and contraction of rolls associated with induced axial loads and fluctuating temperature found in steel mill applications.

Two rows of self-guiding rollers with a common sphered raceway in the outer ring reduce friction, minimize heat generation, accommodate shaft misalignments and heavy loads, and contribute to longer bearing life.

CARB toroidals are self-aligning radial bearings merging the benefits of standard “locating/non-locating” systems typically found in continuous caster applications. They accommodate misalignment (similar to spherical roller bearings) and normally supplied as full complement bearings to take advantage of their increased load rating.

They’re available in a range of sizes, specify them with specialized seals or customize them for demanding applications.

SKF is a Swedish-based supplier of bearings, seals, mechatronics, lubrication systems, and services with Canadian offices in Toronto.
