Spherical Roller Bearings

Spherical roller bearings are capable of withstanding the most arduous environments and operating conditions. Spherical roller bearings are self-aligning in the outer ring based upon the curvature of the raceway and rolling element.

With the spherical roller bearings’ self-aligning characteristics, deviations in shaft misalignment can be accepted more easily. Low to medium speed applications are optimal when integrating the spherical roller bearing into your product solution.

Common models of spherical roller bearings available through Ritbearing include the 21300 Series, 22200 Series, 22300 Series, 23000 Series, 23200 Series, 23900 Series, 24000 Series, 24100 Series.

If you need more than a standard part, Ritbearing also offers custom engineered spherical roller bearings. Our experts can work with you to custom engineer a bearing solution for your specific design needs.
