Split Roller Bearings (SRBs) have been designed and developed to maximise service life and minimise maintenance effort.
Split bearings combine the two crucial elements of running cost-effective machinery: flexibility and reliability. Flexibility because the split design allows access without the need to dismantle components related to the bearing. Reliability because they are able to function in what might otherwise be thought of as ‘problem’ locations.
Cooper Bearings specialise in split roller bearings. The key features of Cooper split bearings mean they will function effectively anywhere your designer has the imagination to incorporate them:
- the swivel cartridge accommodates angular misalignment
- the constantly concentric sealing offers superior protection
- only grease lubrication is needed for maintenance
Cooper bearings are manufactured in different series which are appropriate for different tasks in specific working conditions. For more details on the Cooper Bearings range of split bearings click on the following links

Split Roller Bearing Types
Retained Type Bearing
This bearing has integral lips on the outer race, to provide a surface for axial load. The axial load is accommodated on the inner race via the hardened clamp rings, which both align the inner race halves and provide roller guidance. In larger bearings the inner race is manufactured with integral ribs for roller guidance and axial load.
Expansion Type Bearing
This bearing is designed for radial loads only. As in the retained type bearing, the rollers are guided on the inner race by the hardened shoulders of the clamping rings. During expansion or contraction of the shaft rollers are free to move across the plain outer race, offering virtually no resistance to axial movement. Limits for the amount of axial movement are given in the assembly and maintenance section
Plummer Blocks are widely used in demanding heavy industrial operations, plummer blocks feature durable housing and robust sealing options to keep lubrication in and contamination out. Plummer blocks are available in tapered-bore design for easy mounting or straight-bore for better axial location.

Pillow blocks are available in tapered-bore design for easy mounting or straight-bore for better axial location. Split construction allows for easy assembly and disassembly. Multiple sealing options are available to protect against contamination.
