FAQS

QHow does a tapered roller bearing work?

ATapered roller bearings support radial loads as the wheel turns, but also lateral loads, in one direction only, via the tapered construction. Lateral loads are encountered primarily as the vehicle moves around a curve, and the traction of the tires resists the centrifugal force on the moving car.

QWhat are roller bearings?

AA roller bearing is a cylindrical or spherical object that aids in the movement of items, typically those that are heavy or large.

QIs it dangerous to drive with a bad wheel bearing?

ADriving with a bad wheel bearing is dangerous, but if you have no alternative, you must drive with extra care. Maintain a slow, steady speed, and do not accelerate quickly. Bad wheel bearings cause the wheel to loosen, and driving fast with a loose wheel heightens your chance for an accident.

QWhat are the bearings called?

ASome bearings use a thick grease for lubrication, which is pushed into the gaps between the bearing surfaces, also known as packing. The grease is held in place by a plastic, leather, or rubber gasket (also called a gland) that covers the inside and outside edges of the bearing race to keep the grease from escaping.

QWhat is the difference between plain bearings and rolling bearings?

APlain bearings are generally optimized for a single speed, while rolling bearings can tolerate a wider speed range, more suitable for variable speed drives.
