Spherical Roller Bearings

Spherical Roller Bearing are a branched type of rotatory bearings. Spherical Roller Bearings are also included as a type of Roller Bearings. The type of rolling element kept in the cage of Spherical Roller Bearings is spherical rollers. Spherical Roller Bearing are available in two designs looking at the rows of rolling elements.

  1. Single Row Spherical Rolling Bearings (Single row of rolling elements)
  2. Double Row Spherical Roller Bearings (Double row of rolling elements)

The Spherical Roller Bearings are one of the best bearings to handle heavy loads and accommodate misalignments. These bearings have a simple structure. That makes these bearings go through a considerable amount of axial load and very high radial loads.

What are Spherical Roller Bearings?

The Spherical Roller Bearing is a part of different machinery. These bearings are used to improve the working efficiency of the machines and make them durable. These roller bearings are best to reduce the amount of friction in heavy load carrying machines to its minimum possibility.

The use and manufacturing of the double row Spherical Roller Bearing are significantly more than the single-row bearing. It is because of the heavy load carrying capacity, durability, and efficiency of the double row bearing. The single row Spherical Roller Bearing are good to handle only low radial loads.

What are Spherical Roller Bearings used for?

Spherical Roller Bearings are used

  • To carry a very high radial load in machinery.
  • To handle low axial loads in both directions.
  • To improve or increase the working motion and efficiency of heavy load carrying machines.
  • To assist different machinery to work with the minimum possible amount of friction.
  • To resist the impact of shocks on the machines.

The uses of Spherical Roller Bearings in different functionality are as follows:

  • These bearings are used in gearboxes and electric motors to reduce the amount of friction in automotive appliances.
  • These bearings are used in wind turbines to keep their wings in motion to generate power.
  • These bearings are used in cranes, elevators and escalators to lift heavy loads, cargo, heavy materials, and other stuff.

Including all the above machines and appliances, Spherical Roller Bearings are used in conveyors, the metal industry, marines and offshores, vehicles, and different manufacturing industries.

How do Spherical Roller Bearings Work?

All the Spherical Roller Bearing have the same structure and work. These bearings are based on two rings. The inner convex-shaped called Inner Ring and the outer concave-shaped called Outer Ring. The spherical rollers that are the rolling elements of these bearings are fitted between the two rings and packed in the cage. The double row Spherical Roller Bearing consists of two rows of rolling elements.

When the Spherical Roller Bearing is fitted in the machine or appliance, the shaft gets affected by the load then the fitted bearing starts to rotate and starts performing its functions.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Spherical Roller Bearings


Following are the advantages of using Spherical Roller Bearings:

  • These bearings can operate with misalignment.
  • They are the best bearing to handle an amount of very high radial loads.
  • Can moves the load in both axial and radial directions.
  • Do not require such maintenance services.
  • The structure is suitable to carry a high load capacity.
  • Reduce the amount of friction and improve the working efficiency of the machines.


Following are the disadvantages of the Spherical Roller Bearings:

  • These bearings have limited and low-performing speeds.
  • The initial fiction of the machinery is very high even if the machine has these bearings.

The heat dissipation of the bearing is pathetic.
