Cooper bench­mark for split roller bear­ing ex­per­tise

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - FRONT PAGE -

Since Thomas Cooper in­vented the split roller bear­ing in 1907, the Cooper brand has been uni­ver­sally ac­cepted as the bench­mark for split roller bear­ing qual­ity and ex­per­tise. More than 100 years later, Cooper is proud to con­tinue of­fer­ing the high­est qual­ity and widest range of split to the shaft bear­ings on the mar­ket, con­firm­ing the com­pany’s sta­tus as tech­nol­ogy leader.

What­ever your in­dus­try, Cooper split bear­ings are the key to en­sur­ing you max­imise the po­ten­tial of cer­tain ap­pli­ca­tions by min­imis­ing down­time – whether that’s for sched­uled main­te­nance or un­ex­pected fail­ures.


In­stalling and ser­vic­ing bear­ings in con­vey­ors or bucket el­e­va­tors – es­pe­cially be­tween head pul­ley and gear­box or mo­tor where bear­ings have com­po­nents mounted ei­ther side – can be tricky, time- con­sum­ing and ex­pen­sive.

Cooper split bear­ings pro­vide a solution to solve this prob­lem for ma­chin­ery through its de­sign:

• Unique split-to-the-shaft con­struc­tion makes it pos­si­ble to in­stall and re­place with­out mov­ing ad­ja­cent com­po­nents.

• The bear­ing is split into smaller com­po­nents mak­ing assem­bly and chang­ing out very sim­ple even in cramped and dif­fi­cult-to-ac­cess places.

• Clear­ances are pre-set and no ad­just­ment is needed or spe­cial­ist tools re­quired.

• Su­pe­rior seal­ing means Cooper split roller bear­ings can out­last con­ven­tional bear­ings in both reg­u­lar and ex­tremely harsh con­di­tions, in­clud­ing be­low-the-ground and un­der­wa­ter.


As Cooper split roller bear­ings are so ac­ces­si­ble, they are eas­ier to in­cor­po­rate and eas­ier to main­tain which means you save the time that used to be spent shut­ting off ma­chin­ery for main­te­nance and check­ing – and the pro­duc­tive hours lost as a con­se­quence.


As well as pil­low blocks and flange hous­ings, we pro­vide spe­cially de­signed take- up units – avail­able as ei­ther push or ten­sion types – that al­low Cooper bear­ings to be ap­plied eas­ily to the shafts of belt con­vey­ors.


These units are ra­di­ally lo­cated by a threaded boss and are avail­able in sin­gle, dou­ble and triple boss ver­sions pro­vid­ing a unique op­por­tu­nity to sup­port the cen­tre bear­ing po­si­tions of augers or scroll type con­vey­ors. The new 100 se­ries also comes into its own here as the ex­tra-com­pact­ness of 100 se­ries bear­ings of­fers a smaller hous­ing size with less re­sis­tance to the flow of ma­te­rial.


These can be fixed at any angle, in­clud­ing hor­i­zon­tally, which gives your de­sign­ers the great­est pos­si­ble flex­i­bil­ity. In­ter­change­abil­ity is of­ten cru­cial – as is the abil­ity to re­place ex­ist­ing solid bear­ings if nec­es­sary – which is why our blocks are avail­able with shaft-height-to- cen­tre and bolt hole pat­terns to match those of SN, SD and SAF units.


What­ever your ap­pli­ca­tion, we can pro­vide the ap­pro­pri­ate seal. From the ‘every­day’ tra­di­tional seals to those that are more spe­cialised to han­dle cor­ro­sion and other ex­treme en­vi­ron­ments. Rest as­sured we can tai­lor-make a solution to op­ti­mize pro­duc­tiv­ity.


Cooper split roller bear­ings lib­er­ate the de­sign of con­vey­ors. Shafts, ad­ja­cent com­po­nents and ma­chin­ery can all be sim­pli­fied with­out com­pro­mis­ing per­for­mance.

All of this means that you are free to de­sign a job around its func­tion, rather than the lim­i­ta­tions of its bear­ings.
