Large Size Bearings Technical Compendium Now Available from Schaeffler

A new, 1100-page technical compendium on large size bearings is now available from Schaeffler (UK) Ltd.

Catalogue GL1 provides OEMs, distributors and end users with a comprehensive overview of the range of large size bearings available from Schaeffler for heavy machinery and equipment.

The catalogue provides technical information on more than 10,000 bearings under the INA and FAG brands with outside diameters (OD) up to 2,800mm. It is a valuable complement to Schaeffler's existing HR1 rolling bearings catalogue, which includes rolling bearings up to 1,300mm OD.

The new catalogue also contains useful bearing accessories, special rolling bearings, spherical plain bearings and bearing housings.

When it comes to large size bearings, Schaeffler offers considerable expertise and technical guidance. For many years, the company's INA and FAG branded large size bearings have been the preferred choice for heavy industry applications, including steel, paper, mining and mineral processing, industrial power transmission, wind turbines, rail, production machinery and the energy sector.

In most of these industries, large size bearings are critical in ensuring the high reliability, energy efficiency and correct functioning of drive systems and other important machine components.

Catalogue GL1 shows which products are suitable for specific bearing arrangements and which factors need to be considered during the design process, the tolerances required of the adjacent structures, and how the bearing can be sealed effectively in light of the application conditions. The catalogue also provides detailed information on service life calculations, operating temperatures and loads, lubricant selection and suitability and how the products should be mounted, dismounted and maintained.
