Taper Roller Bearings:
Taper roller bearings consists of two main units, a cup and a cone. The cup is on the outer race whereas the cone consists of inner race, the separator and compliment of taper rollers. The taper rollers are guided by the high load on the inner race. The taper roller bearings are manufactured with interchangeable cups and cone on the shaft separately. These bearings are capable of carrying both the radial and axial loads and permit fine adjustment for end play. Greater care is required to ensure the proper alignment of bearings and maintenance of proper axial clearance is essential to avoid bearing failure. Due to more development in the design of the taper roller bearings, these are also available with 2 rows and 4 rows.
