What are the benefits of double row spherical roller bearings?

Benefits of single row spherical roller bearings include:

  • These bearings can accommodate misalignment, due to their self-aligning convex roller design.
  • Double row spherical roller bearings have an extremely high load carrying capacity, tolerating both radial and axial loads in both directions. 
  • The spherical rollers within these bearings are self guiding, meaning that they are able to reduce the coefficient of friction.
