Special Features

Developed to be tough!

The Extreme Bearings are made entirely from high-grade AISI 316 stainless steel. This stainless steel bearing housing is combined with a spherical roller bearing clever sealing options to keep dirt, water and chemicals out. The cover is locked into the housing. So the cover cannot be lost. This complete bearing assembly unit is what we call the Extreme Bearing.

Sizes alivable from 25mm up to 100mm 1″-4″

Up to 5 times higher load capacity than conventional bearing uits

Made from high-grade AISI 316 stainless steel 

  • Excellent chemical resistance
  • Suitable for food and pharma applications
  • Entirely solid Stainless body

A wide range of seal options available

  • Works under high pressure up to 40 bar
  • Abrasive environments
  • Seals voor submersible to 40m Deep
  • For wide temperature range from -79°C up to 260°C

For heavy loads

Double row spherical roller bearings have an extremely high load carrying capacity. tolerating both radial and axial loads in both directions.

Well sealed

Extreme bearing units are extremely well sealed for use in difficult and extreme conditions.

Heat resistance

Allow for thermal expansion and contraction

Low friction and angular misalignment.

Rotation with low friction, and permits angular misalignment.

Stainless steel 316

Corrosion resistant stainless steel allowing application harsh environments and frequent washdowns in water and chemicals

Lubrification distribution

Less grease usage, better bearing lubrication as a result of a more efficient grease guiding system

Designed for two types of bearing inserts

We offer housings designed for two types of bearing inserts:

  • Type T is for double row spherical roller bearings.
  • Type E is new and is for single row spherical roller bearings.

Please note that we do not use stainless steel bearing inserts. In our bearing assembly solutions. Even though stainless steel makes a great material for the bearing housing of the Extreme Bearing. Stainless steel makes a poor material for a bearing insert. Stainless steel inserts are often subject to fretting damage. And wear out fast. Instead, we recommend inserts made of chrome steel. Such as 100Cr6.

Type T – Self-aligning double row spherical roller bearings

Valuable in demanding applications with heavy loads.

  • Self-aligning double row spherical roller bearings allow misalignment. Between the shaft and housing. Without increase of friction. And without reduction of bearing life.
  • Very high load-carrying capacity: optimum layout inside provides maximum radial and axial load-carrying capacity.
  • Robust: insensitive to misalignment. Caused by shaft or housing deflection due to heavy load.
  • Easily fitted for loads in all directions.
  • Easy to mount: The favourable design characteristics and mounting enable an efficient and compact machine design.
  • Perfect concentric fit on shaft. Using an adapter sleeve.

E-Type Self-aligning single row spherical roller bearings

Valuable for high radial loads. Or a combination of radial and thrust loads.

  • New generation of Extreme Bearing.
  • High radial load capacity.
  • Extra barrier to prevent contamination.
  • The bearing seals are properly secured by retaining rings.
  • Sealed and greased for life.
  • Perfect concentric fit on shaft using an adapter sleeve.
