No separate provision is required to take thrust load. Radial as well as axial clearance can be either
widened or narrowed depending on the end use requirement like :
a) Tolerance to misalignment.
b) Temperature change.
c) Type of load (i.e.) frequency, direction, impact etc.
The Bearing and chock assembly can be removed from the next as a unit without loss or
condemnation of lubricant. The chock assembly can be re-installed on another roll neck in a
minimum of time. The space limitations on medium duty installations have made it necessary to
provide narrow double row Taper Roller Bearings, thereby the bearings become cheaper in cost.
Applications where high load capacity in a minimum of width required, double row Taper Roller
Bearings have been popular. In high speed applications like rolling mills subject to medium
separating forces, double row Taper Roller Bearings with taper bore can be used. Assembly of two
row Taper Roller Bearing is very easy. No pre-loading is necessary. It is a simplified design
eliminating cumbersome construction and extra thrust devices.
