Selecting Cooper split bearings

Cooper split bearings combine the two crucial elements of running cost-effective machinery: flexibility and reliability.

Flexibility because the split design allows access without the need to dismantle components related to the bearing.

Reliability because they are able to function in what might otherwise be thought of as 'problem' locations.

No problem

The key features of Cooper split bearings mean they will function effectively anywhere your designer has the imagination to incorporate them:

  • the swivel cartridge accommodates angular misalignment
  • the constantly concentric sealing offers superior protection
  • only grease lubrication is needed for maintenance

This results in bearings that are able to withstand harsh working conditions while keeping downtime to a minimum. They are straightforward to retro-fit and can replace most spherical or bush bearings in rotational equipment.

Increasingly, Cooper split bearings are specified at the design stage due to the significant reduction in maintenance downtime - and therefore greater return on investment – they represent.
