Our oilfield bearing solutions deliver optimal performance ratings for the oil & gas industry.

Angular Contact Bearings

  • Can withstand the demands of high speed applications.
  • Can accept radial and thrust loads.
  • Different contact angles available.

Combination Bearings

  • Outer rings are produced from case hardened material.
  • Combi-bearings accommodate heavy radial and axial loads.
  • Can be offered with or without the mounting plate.

Cylindrical Roller Bearings

  • Wide variety of options are available: Single, double, or multi-row are readily available.
  • Special clearances and grease allow for customized solutions.

Needle Roller Bearings

  • Needle roller bearings offer a higher load carrying capacity and can withstand oscillation with greater rigidity.
  • A wide range of styles are available, including some series made from stainless steel.

Slewing Ring Bearings

  • Products can be manufactured according to print.
  • A wide variety of materials can be used to manufacture slewing rings products.
  • Other options include additional rows of rolling elements depending upon application conditions.

Spherical Roller Bearings

  • Can withstand the most arduous environments and operating conditions.
  • Can accept deviations in shaft misalignment.
  • Low to medium speeds are optimal when using spherical roller bearings.

Thin Section Bearings

  • Compact design is a problem solving solutions when applications have special constraints.
  • Minimal weight with options available on contact angle.
  • A wide range of materials are available in the production of thin section bearings.

Thrust Bearings

  • Can be offered in single or double direction.
  • Larger more robust sizes can accept heavier axial loads.
  • Will be able to accept shaft misalignment with spherical thrust roller bearings.

Toroidal Roller Bearings

  • Product can accept angular misalignment and axial displacement.
  • Combines the best features of the needle roller design and the spherical roller bearing.
  • Utilizes a specially designed roller to accommodate the harshest environmental conditions.

Ritbearing supplies high-quality, reliable bearings for the oil and gas industry that meet the specific demands of each application.
