Cooper Split Bearings and Kaydon Bearings will debut an increased range of new specialist bearings for mining applications on Stand 2005 at AIMEX.
New at AIMEX will be its 01E and O2E enhanced bearings series which, according to the company, combine a greater load capacity than any split-to-the-shaft roller bearings of similar size with up to 135 per cent longer life, making them ideal for harsh mining conditions; and split double-row tapered (DTR) bearings, described as the first of their kind and designed for high-thrust applications such as ventilation fans and blowers and marine prop shafts.
New Kaydon mining excavator slewing ring bearings will be another feature of the companies’ display.
They include 4-point contact ball, 8-point contact ball, cross-roller, and 3-row roller designs. Available in diameters from 50.8 mm to 6.1m, they can be ordered with no gearing, internal gearing or external gearing.
All feature a triple labyrinth seal that stays concentric with the shaft, maintaining sealing integrity even when the shaft is misaligned.
