Cooper Roller Bearings says it has increased the load capacities of many of its split roller bearings. According to the company, the new 01E and 02E bearings are fully interchangeable with its Cooper 01 and 02 Series bearings and provide up to 29% more radial capacity and 16% to 90% more axial load capacity.

Like all Cooper split roller bearings, the 01E and 02E Series are completely split to the shaft, which eliminates the need to disassemble all components on a shaft for service or replacement, the company explains.

The increased life and capacities of the 01E (medium-duty) and 02E (heavy-duty) bearings are due primarily to changes in internal geometry, Cooper Roller Bearings notes, adding that rugged brass cages make the 01E and 02E bearings suitable for underground applications and other challenging environments.

The new design is now available in medium-duty and heavy-duty bearings with bore sizes ranging from 6.5 inches to 12 inches (160 mm to 300 mm).
