Since Thomas Cooper invented the split roller bearing in 1907, the Cooper Bearings name has been universally accepted as the benchmark for split roller bearing quality and expertise.
More than 100 years later, Cooper is proud to continue offering the highest quality and widest range of split to the shaft bearings on the market, confirming the company’s status as technology leader.
Split Roller Bearings
The Cooper Split Roller Bearing uses cylindrical rollers and components made in halves. Assembly of these halves around the shaft eliminates removal of couplings, gearboxes, pulleys etc, and simplifies shaft design. Cylindrical rollers allow unrestricted shaft expansion within the ‘EX’ bearing and can accommodate moderate axial loads with the ‘GR’ bearing. Housed in Cooper swivel cartridges offering shaft alignment and superior concentric sealing options, they can be used in a various forms of outer housings.
Split Tapered Bearings
The Cooper Split Tapered Roller Bearing has two opposed rows of rollers to take axial loads in either direction, and is intended for use in the ‘fixed’ bearing position, with ‘EX’ expansion bearings in all other positions on the shaft. With components made in halves, it is housed in Cooper swivel cartridges offering shaft alignment and superior concentric sealing options, they can be mounted in pedestal or flange outer housings.
Cooper frequently supply special and customised bearing solutions. Our extensive design and manufacture capabilities offer various alternative bearing solutions to those shown in our standard product range. These include bespoke housings to suit our standard bearings, large bore bearings, water cooled bearings, flat thrust bearings, all available in split formats offering the usual Cooper benefits and advantages. Bore sizes up to 1500mm and a wide range of special features can be considered and our Technical Department will be pleased to advise on a suitable product.
Split Spherical Roller Bearings
Cooper split spherical roller bearings are designed to be easily replaced in situ and require very few changes to the shaft alignment or driveline – reducing mean time to repair (MTTR) by two-thirds, as well as reducing production downtime, maintenance costs and risks to maintenance worker safety.
Cooper, the leader in the field of split bearing technology, is the only bearing manufacturer to offer split cylindrical, taper and spherical roller bearings, as well as the new sealed split spherical roller bearings.
