Product DescriptionC 3040 SKF CARB Toroidal Roller Bearings (Open)
This compact self-aligning roller bearing was developed by SKF and introduced on the market in 1995. It has a unique design, in which it combines the self-aligning capability of the spherical roller bearing with the unconstrained axial displacement ability of the cylindrical roller bearing.
CARB bearings allow for smaller and lighter bearing arrangement designs offering the same or improved performance in a particularly impressive manner, e.g. in planetary gearboxes. They simplify the bearing arrangement design for long shafts that are subjected to temperature variations. When using CARB bearings, it has also been proven that vibration levels are reduced, e.g. in paper machines or fans.
The rollers of the CARB bearing are self-guiding, i.e. they will always adopt the position where the load is evenly distributed over the roller length - irrespective of whether the inner ring is axially displaced and/or misaligned with respect to the outer ring.
The load carrying capacity of the CARB bearing is very high even when it has to compensate for angular misalignment or axial displacement. This results in an operationally reliable bearing arrangement with long service life.
