Bearing terms

A.B.E.C. 1-3-5-7-9: Annular Bearing Engineering Committee grades concern precision tolerances and geometry of bearings. Higher number indicates higher precision.

A.F.B.M.A.: The Anti-Friction Bearing Manufacturers Association. Incorporated. They have set up standards for the bearing industry.

Adapter: An accessory for holding bearing to shaft. Standard taper is 1” on the diameter for each 12” length.

Average life: Five times minimum life.

B-10 Life: Minimum life that is expected of 90% of a group of bearings under identical operating conditions.

Boundary Dimensions: Dimensions for bore, outside diameter, and width.

Brinell: True_Identations in the races or on rolling elements caused by sharp blows (metal flow).

False – Wearing away of metal in raceways. It is caused by rolling elements – sliding back and forth on race while bearing is stationary. Vibration causes this sliding movement.

Cage: A ring with the necessary number of pockets to equally space rolling elements. Also called Separator-Retainer and Spacer.

Clearance: Radial clearance – The amount of movement of the outer race at right angles to the shaft axis when the inner is clamped. Also called Internal Radial Clearance – Internal Clearance and Diametrical Clearance.

Axis: Clearance-Total movement parallel to bearing axis when an axial load is applied in first one direction and then the other. Also called End Shake and Axial Play.

Conrad: Standard single row deep groove ball bearing. No filling slots and no counterbore.

Contact Seal: A closure that connects inner ring and outer ring with rubbing contact.

Counterbore Assembly: Portion of one race shoulder turned and ground away to facilitate assembly with a greater number of balls.

Cone: Tapered bearing inner ring.

Cup: Tapered bearing outer ring.

Super Precision Bearings: Bearings with faces ground in such a way that they can be matched with one or more mating bearings.

Floating Bearing: A bearing mounted to move freely axially either in housing or on the shaft.

Land: Commonly called the O.D. on inner and the I.D of outer.

Loads: Radial – At right angle to axis of bearing.

Thrust: In the same direction as axis of shaft.

Lubricating Groove: A groove so placed to catch and feed lubricant to the inner moving parts of a bearing.
