'A solid bearing can take up to 24 hours to remove, while a Cooper split bearing can usually be changed in under two hours,' Tyler stresses.
These split roller bearings require 10% to 15% of the time required to fit a typical solid bearing, the company says.
Solid bearing models feature a trapezoidal bearing design for maximized bearing surface and reduced wear.
Wichard ball-bearing blocks, in 32 and 42 mm diamater sheave sizes, have an innovative design that incorporates two lateral sizes of ball bearings set into the side of the sheave and a solid bearing hub.
Cutting the hole accurately is critical so that the box ears have solid bearing on the plaster (Photo 4).
In this case, Rosa explained, "The solution was an innovative repair design that involved driving six equally spaced steel pipe piles approximately 60 feet in small sections to solid bearing material." After this, the slab was jacked back into place and tied back off to the pile column caps and adjacent slab panels with reinforcing.
Force/Load A load capacity of 156 to 2,313 N (solid bearing)
52.) If you're installing wainscoting, as we show here, cut the receptacle hole equal to or slightly smaller than the box to give the extender and receptacle ears solid bearing (Photo 3).
The additional cost of purchasing a SRB split bearing comparable in size to a solid bearing is often no more than the additional maintenance cost for one replacement unit, and a fraction of the cost of any unplanned downtime.
The trapezoidal solid bearing design reduces stress concentration by 59 percent.
Experience shows that split roller bearing fitting time is only around 10% to 15% of the time taken to fit an equivalent size solid bearing. As well as solid bearings being time consuming to fit, they are impossible to inspect while in situ, so routine inspection can often be overlooked.
Unlike solid bearings, SRB split roller bearings are totally split to the shaft; a design that both simplifies and expedites installation and significantly cuts downtime costs in comparison to replacing solid bearings of a similar size.
