NTN Mining ApplicationMining Crushing Transfer ProcessingCAT. NO. 3024/ELARGE SIZE TAPERED ROLLER BEARINGS EA TypeA newly developed special heat treatment allows these bearings to ensure longer operating lifeunder severe operating conditions!!FeaturesApplication ExampleEA bearings have a particularly strong advantage by providinglonger operating life due to their improved crack fatigue strength,wear strength and peeling resistance characteristics, especiallywhen the lubricant is contaminated, but also under clean lubricantconditions. Accordingly, these bearings can be used in mining andore processing applications where marginal lubrication, vibrationsand impact loads often exist. The EA bearings provide advantagesdue to their compact design, longer operating life, and longerintervals between maintenance and inspections. EA materialtreatment can be offered in tapered roller, cylindrical roller andspherical roller bearings.Compound layerof carburized andnitrided materialsCarburized layerCoreFront wheel of dunp truck7

NO. 2202/ELARGE SIZE DOUBLE ROW TAPERED ROLLER BEARINGSFeaturesApplication ExampleBack to back arrangement and face to face arrangement areboth available, and they have been adjusted so that eachtype’s internal clearance is fixed. Pairs of duplex single rowtapered roller bearings are also manufactured. For moredetails, contact NTN Engineering.Face to face arrangement types are used for reducers andtire rollers in vertical mills. Especially bearings for tire rollersare designed to endure heavy loads and shock loads. Pintype cages are sometimes selected for maximum capacity.For heavy load and bi-rotational applications, NTN utilizepinned cages with pin seating bush for increased cagestrength. This cage design has gained strong acceptance byequipment operators.Face-to-faceBack-to-backThe tyre roller of vertical mill8

NTN Mining ApplicationMining Crushing Transfer ProcessingBEARINGS with SOLID GREASECAT. NO. 3022/EFeatures"Solid grease" is a lubricant essentially composed oflubricating grease and ultra high-molecular-weightpolyethylene. Solid grease has the same viscosity asordinary grease at normal temperature, but as aresult of a special heat treatment process, this greasesolidifies retaining a large proportion of thelubricant in it. By this solidification, the grease does noteasily leak from the bearing, evenwhen the bearing is subjected to strong vibrations orcentrifugal force.Solid grease lubrication1. Reduced lubricant leakageBecause the base oil is retained in a solid form, it is lesslikely to leak out of the bearing. During operation,temperature rise and/or centrifugal force will cause agradual release of the base oil into the rolling surfaces.Eliminating grease leakage from the bearing ensures aconsistent supply of lubricant and prevents contamination ofthe surrounding environment.2. Superior lubricationBearings with solid grease resist grease leakage prolongingbearing life in applications where high centrifugal force orvibration are present. The solid lubricant does not emulsifywhen exposed to water also extending both grease andbearing life.3. Sealing effectThough solid grease protects a bearing against ingress offoreign matters (water, dust, etc.), it is not an effectivesealing device. Therefore, for applications that need reliablesealing performance, we recommend the use of contact typerubber seals (deep groove ball bearings, bearing units) orother seals (other bearing types).Solid grease bearing for swing machinery12
