FAG split spherical roller bearings from Schaeffler are supposed to simplify and speed up bearing replacement, particularly in areas that are difficult to access such as shafts with multiple supports. In a split bearing, the inner ring, the outer ring, and the roller and cage assembly are divided into two halves that are clamped together with screws. Using the split version of these bearings allows numerous process steps to be omitted during mounting and dismounting. This means that downtimes can be significantly reduced and correspondingly high cost savings can be achieved. Because the dimensions have been exactly matched, the split spherical roller bearings can be installed in the same space as their unsplit counterparts (including the adapter sleeve). Applications include belt drives, paper machines, ships, conveying equipment, converters, rolling mills, and ventilation-related systems.
