Brandnew Bearings for High Temperatures close [X]
Xtemp completes the ABEG® eXtreme series of Findling

Extremely hot or particularly cold: No problem for the latest complement of the ABEG® eXtreme series of Findling. Xtemp bearings, which are available in short-term, are customized especially for use under extreme conditions concerning the factors material, greasing and sealing. These highly reliable solutions satisfy with an especially long lifetime in diverse varieties.

What had to be constructed as a special bearing in the past, is now available in short-term and part of the standard range of the bearing specialist Findling from Karlsruhe, Germany. As a part of the eXtreme series, additionally Xtemp bearings are now available for applications under extremely hot or cold conditions. These deep groove ball bearings fit the highest requirements of extremely high or low temperatures. Appropriate materials for example prevent from irregular volume change, which means that the capability of the bearing remains. Furthermore, greasing and sealing of this new edition were chosen to support an essentially higher lifetime under certain thermal conditions.

Xtemp bearings can be used under different circumstances, from -54°C up to more than 1000°C – but this is not enough: Findling could additionally increase the lifetime with the help of reasoned modifications. Compared to standard bearings of the Supra-class, lifetime was enlarged for about 20% to 50%. This calculation was made for an operating temperature of 120°C, which is the temperature for example in electric fans or in heaters. Bearings even have to withstand up to 250°C in furnaces, grills or waffle makers. In particular, ball bearings made of bearing steel 100Cr6 or stainless steel, with durable Viton sealings are suitable for these applications – under certain circumstances a special heat treatment of the material moreover ensures dimensional accuracy. Greasing with especially heat resistant lubricants guarantees an optimal operation; an alternative for higher temperature ranges can be provided by solid lubricants like graphite for example.

It gets especially hot for bearings when they are used in industrial applications, like for example in iron and steel industry, glass or ceramic industry. A special case can be found in brickworks: bearings used for carriages in furnaces or wheel bearings used there have to stand temperatures of more than 1000°C. Clearly, this is a case for the material ceramic: silicon nitride (Si3N4) and silicon carbide (SSiC), both have the advantage of a very low extension by heat. They are very resistant against chemicals and prevent of corrosion and fatigue. Furthermore, the right dimensioning of bearing clearance plays a great roll in high temperature ranges; if components extend because of heat, the functionality of the bearing has to remain constantly. By the way, sealings cannot be used anymore in these extreme applications: even the most durable materials would be damaged under such a great heat influence. Up to 350°C, contaminations can be avoided by protecting covers made of metal or PEEK.

Tough and Corrosion-resistant close [X]
Housed Bearing Units by Findling: The Best Choice for Agricultural Applications

Agricultural machines have to be designed for rough operating conditions – this is also the case for the installed components. In the sector of bearing technology, the Findling Waelzlager GmbH offers solutions especially designed for these applications to producers of agricultural machines and attachments. Particularly, housed bearing units, which are in many variations part of the product range of Findling, are appropriate for the operation in such tough machines.

Because of their tough and corrosion-protective properties, housed bearing units are used in the agricultural sector in particular. The Findling Waelzlager GmbH offers different kinds of pillow block and flange units in all four ABEG® performance classes, also available with end caps to be protected against rotating of shaft and to secure of corrosion. Moreover, advanced corrosion-resistant variations in different price and performance classes are offered, as well as brand newly available massive cast housings – whether pillow block or flange unit (also for axial operations) – especially designed for high load applications, which have an increased load limit ¬compared to other products available on the market. “In agricultural applications, the equipment has to withstand highest loads, due to dirt, moisture and extreme temperatures,” says Steffen Reinbold, head of technology and development at the Findling Waelzlager GmbH. “The more important is it, to make the right choice out of an extremely large product range, when deciding about such crucial machine elements.”

Equipment used on fields for sawing, ploughing and harvesting is directly exposed to corrosive substances like rain water, pesticides or industrial fertilizers – accordingly corrosion-resistance of all components is very important. Especially for those applications, particularly corrosion-protective housed bearing units in premium quality are available from Findling. Moreover, part of the product range are products with surface-coated housings, which show an excellent performance in salt spray tests (according to DIN EN ISO 9227). “By a specific surface treatment, for example with nickel, the life time of bearings can be increased enormously,” says Reinbold. Insert bearings are also available in coated versions, for example with zinc or zinc/iron coating, which protects against adverse conditions. These coated insert bearings are more economical than comparable stainless steel versions and can stand higher loads as well.

If pillow block units of the P-series are used in flanged situations (C), the load capacity of the unit is reduced by about 70%. Therefore, the housing represents the critical component, while the insert bearing is oversized automatically – a situation that is not very satisfying for the designer, who has to pay a lot of attention on costs today. A solution to this problem is given by the new bearing housings of the “extra solid”-series by FYH, whose products have been marketed by Findling for 30 years in Germany. Thus, the load limit of a P-205 in operating situation (C) increases from 38 kN to 52 kN for example – an improve of 36% and therefore a chance for downsizing, which means to choose a smaller dimension and save costs as well as installation space as a result. Accordingly, FYH once again demonstrates that their products justly represent the main part of the premium segment of Findling Wälzlager.

Needle roller bearings: Specialists for high load carrying capacities with little installation space close [X]
In different sizes and designs, needle roller bearings are now available

Their distinctive characteristic is given by the thin cylindrical rollers. Through this bearing design, higher loads than with any other bearing can be achieved with a defined cross-section. Thus, needle roller bearings are mostly used for applications, where just a little installation space can be made available.

Like for ball bearings, you have the choice between various types and designs. Therefore, the experts of Findling Wälzlager GmbH do not leave users on their own and surely give them advice and ideas for a technically and economically ideal decision. Like for ball bearings, a distinction between bearings that support radial loads and those that support axial loads can be made. Radial needle roller bearings with or without inner ring just support radial loads and are designed for medium loads with intermediate speeds. They are used especially for transmissions and in generally in mechanical engineering. By renouncing the inner ring, installation size can be reduced additionally. In this case, the shaft serves as the raceway, though – to reach the complete load capacity, the shaft has to be hardened and grinded within the range of 58-64 HRC. This is also the case for needle roller and cage assemblies, which exclusively consist of cages and needle rollers. Here, bearings directly run on the shaft and the housing respectively.

However, axial needle roller bearings just support axial loads; this is applicable because of a solid cage, in which several needle rollers run safe. Here, you can also find various designs and components. Thus, axial needle roller and cage assemblies can be combined with different kinds of axial bearing washers, depending on load carrying capacity of the substructure. Multi row needle roller and cage assemblies for highest load ratings are used in axial piston pumps for example, while models with integrated washers are used in elevating tools and in ancillary components of track vehicles.

Finally, there are also needle roller bearings that combine radial and axial rolling elements. For lower axial loads, a combination of balls and needle rollers is proper (series NKIA/NKIB/NX/NKX); for higher axial loads, a combination of cylindrical rollers and needle rollers is most suitable (series NKXR). Combined bearings can be mounted in a quite uncomplicated way and are easy to handle. Additionally, less installation space is needed, because only one compact combined system instead of two separate bearings can be installed. Therefore, combined bearings are mostly used in applications, where installation space is limited.

Needle roller bearings in a full complement design do not have a cage. Fixation of rollers either takes place through self hold or through a tube, which is just pressed out by the shaft during the mounting process. Full complement needle roller bearings can be used in applications, where low speeds and extremely high loads occur.

Needle overrunning clutches transmit torque between shaft and housing in one direction and make free turning into the opposite direction possible. Potential applications are escapement mechanisms, one-way clutches and transport gear.

Ready-to-install, easy-fit spherical roller bearing units close [X]
The sealed bearing units are equipped with an extremely robust and durable spherical roller bearing and installed in a housing of high-strength spheroidal graphite cast iron

The ready-to-install and easy-fit spherical roller bearings of the renowned manufacturer FYH – also known as the SRU (spherical roller unit) series – compensate angular misalignment, feature a high rpm range and ensure extremely high holding forces on the shaft. Another user advantage is the ease of assembly with low fault susceptibility.

The sealed bearing units are equipped with an extremely robust and durable spherical roller bearing and installed in a housing of high-strength spheroidal graphite cast iron. The rated loads are many times higher than those of standard housing bearings. The units are available as pillow blocks with two or four oval holes, which means they are exchangeable with two-part pillow blocks. Other types include a four-hole flange bearing with or without a centring shoulder (F and FC design) as well as insert bearing models with a shaft diameter of 40-100 mm.

A special feature of the bearing units is the self-aligning triple lip seal. The patented seal system is self-aligning within ±2° and therefore compensates misalignment and shaft deflection. Another feature of the spherical roller units is a special safety locking system called the Z-LOCK. It comprises a locking ring with a conical outer diameter. The unique even 360-degree contact surface achieves extremely high holding forces without damage to the shaft and without negative effects on the bearing clearance and true running of the bearing insert.

The most important advantages of the SRU bearings at a glance
• Also available as four-hole flange (F, FC) and insert bearing (T)
• Extremely high rated loads for reduced installation space
• New sealing system compensates angular misalignment of +/- 2°
• Integrated adapter sleeve can withstand high axial forces
