Cooper benchmark for split roller bearing expertise
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.
HOW COOPER MAKES A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE
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.
DELIVERING TIME AND MONEY SAVINGS
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.
COOPER HOUSINGS TO SUPPORT CONVEYOR APPLICATIONS
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.
BETTER BY DESIGN
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.
