Cylindrical roller bearings have a heavy burden to bear.
These specific types of roller bearings have the ability to manage substantial, heavy-duty radial and axial loads, all the while reducing rotational friction.
The cylinder acts as the primary roller that allows for a larger distribution of loads, which in turn means that the bearings can sustain larger quantities of weight.
How much load can a cylindrical roller bearing really handle? Learn how to calculate different cylindrical roller bearing load capacities to ensure that you and your business can bear the load.
Commit to taking correct coefficients and calculations
The load capacity of cylindrical roller bearings is determined by working out the appropriate calculations to determine its overall practical use and performance.
Coefficients of a cylindrical roller bearing are the quantitative representation of its specific properties. In other words, if the bearing frequently rotates, a dynamic load coefficient must be used. For infrequent rotation, the static load coefficient should be measured.
ISO 76 regulations, as well as DIN ISO 281/1, are helpful guides to refer to when deciding the correct load coefficients and calculation methods of cylindrical roller bearings.
When the load capacity of cylindrical roller bearings is dynamic
Use the dynamic coefficient “C” for the calculation of cylindrical roller bearings when verifying the amount of load strain put on them. Experts advise that, in theory, cylindrical roller bearings can tolerate a maximum load of one million rotations, expressed as the formula Kg/N.
When the load capacity of cylindrical roller bearings is static
Static coefficient “Co” is the calculation to use for fixed or intermittently slow rotations. The static coefficient for loads is instructed to be equal to 1/10,000 of the diameter of the revolving point, which is the most stressed part of the bearing.
Don’t forget to take a break from the math to add roller bearing lubricant
Roller bearing maintenance is vital for long-lasting performance. Lubrication is a prerequisite in achieving an enhanced lifecycle of roller bearings.
Beyond providing a protective film of the bearing surface, lubrication produces a barrier against liquid or solids from enter the bearing, which can exacerbate its wear and tear.
Oil or grease lubrication is the life-sustaining liquid that functions as an anti-corrosive, noise reduction and heat resistant force to ensure that roller bearings can move, roll and spin for many years to come.
