Angular Contact Ball Bearings
Single row angular contact ball bearings are self-retaining units with solid inner and outer rings and ball and cage assemblies with polyamide, sheet metal or brass cages. The raceways of the inner and outer rings are offset from each other along the bearing axis. The bearings are available in open and sealed designs. Their angular adjustment facility is very limited.
Single row angular contact ball bearings can support axial forces in one direction and high radial forces. They must be adjusted against a second bearing fitted in a mirror image arrangement
Bearings with the suffix 2RS have lip seals on both sides. Contact RS seals are suitable for giving protection against dust, contamination and damp atmospheres.
Double row angular contact ball bearings are units with solid inner and outer rings and ball and cage assemblies with polyamide or sheet steel cages. Their construction is similar to a pair of single row angular contact ball bearings in an O arrangement but they are narrower to a certain extent.
The bearings are available in open and sealed designs. Due to the manufacturing processes used, open bearings can have turned recesses in the outer ring for seals or shields. Sealed bearings are maintenance-free and therefore allow particularly economical bearing arrangements.
Due to the raceway geometry and the two rows of balls, the bearing can support forces in both radial and axial directions. They are therefore particularly suitable for use in pumps and agricultural machinery. Furthermore, double row angular contact ball bearings are used in applications including conveying equipment, packaging equipment, elevators and compressors.
