The design of the double row angular contact ball bearing corresponds to two single row angular contact ball bearings arranged back to back. The bearing is capable of carrying high radial loads and thrust loads in both direction. It is particularly suitable for applications calling for high axial rigidity.
Double row angular contact ball bearings with unsplit rings are provided with filling slots on one side. The bearings should be mounted in such a way that the main loads are carried by the raceways without filling slot.
Specific geometry of angular contact bearing raceways and shoulders creates ball contact angles that support higher axial loads.
Expanded options include special lubricants, cage materials, preloads and coatings for additional corrosion resistance.
