Specialised Bearings

 

Flat Thrust

Flat Thrust
Flat thrust bearings can be placed either vertically or horizontally to take axial loads. They can also work in conjunction with other bearings (e.g.: radial) in one single arrangement. Cooper flat thrust bearings are used on gearboxes in power stations and cement works, air pre-heaters and coal pulverisers in power stations and water and sewage pumps and many other applications.
We can supply flat thrust bearings in custom-made designs and bore sizes from 60mm to 600mm to suit your individual application’s requirements. They are supplied un-mounted to be incorporated directly, but we can also create special housingsif required.
All Cooper flat thrust bearings are made to order.

 

04 Series
Cooper 04 Series bearings are specialized bearings for lighter duties at large bore sizes.
04 Series bearings are capable of high speeds, but are also used on lower speed applications. Use of these bearings at high speeds requires special attention to lubrication.
If the bearing is to be used at slow speeds only it may be possible to omit some of the ‘high speed’ features of the bearing, allowing a more economical bearing specification.
Generally, these bearing are available in expansion 'EX' and 'GR' types. Alternative configurations are possible where appropriate.
These bearings may be subjected to a degree of adaptation to suit application requirements. They may also be supplied with slightly different bore sizes to those under which they are listed.

 

Full Row
For slow speed applications (up to approximately 10,000mm dn, depending on size and series) we can supply cageless bearings with a full complement of rollers. These have the same overall dimensions as standard GR and EX bearings, but have higher dynamic and static capacities. This may allow a lighter series of bearing to be selected (e.g. 01 Series instead of 02 Series) resulting in a more compact, and sometimes more economical, solution.

 

Over 600mm
Generally, these bearings are available in expansion 'EX' or fixed 'GR' types. Extra expansion 'Exilog' types are also made regularly, but often have different envelope dimensions (in particular, the inner race is usually wider).
Lighter duty 04 Series bearings are shown separately.
It is always advisable to contact Cooper when specifying large bearings.

 

Water Cooled
Water-cooled bearing units for continuous casting machines are generally customised to individual applications. Bearings are of the 071 or 081 Series, which are designed specifically for this type of application. The general features of a typical design are illustrated above.

Bearings of the type illustrated may also be applied to other slow moving applications (generally under 15rpm) where a high capacity bearing is required in a compact envelope.

If you wish to specify Cooper water-cooled bearing units, or bearings of the 071 or 081 Series, please contact our technical department with details of the application.

 

Bespoke
Generally, these bearings are available in expansion ‘EX’ or fixed ‘GR’ types. Extra-expansion ‘EXILOG’ types are also made regularly, but often have different envelope dimensions (in particular, the inner race is usually wider).
Lighter duty 04 Series bearings are shown separately.
It is always advisable to contact Cooper when specifying large bearings.
