Tapered roller bearing load capacities depend on the raceway angle of the positive outer ring. The greater the angle, the greater the carrying capacity. This is different from different angular contact ball bearings made from a variety of materials. Our recommendations are listed below.
Single Row Tapered Roller Bearings
The cone angle of the outer ring raceway ranges from 10° to 19°, and can support a combination load from both axial and radial directions, making them ideal for lathe spindles and compressors.
Double row tapered roller bearings are capable of bearing both an axial and radial load. They also feature a high rigidity, making them ideal for gear boxes, lifting equipment, rolling mills, and mining machinery.
Four row tapered roller bearings can accommodate a higher radial load, while the limiting speed is slightly lower. These bearings are ideal for use in heavy duty machinery.
