Timken tapered roller bearings improve calculated load ratings and can be used in various mobile and industrial equipment such as rail and vehicle systems, mining and aggregate, agriculture and food processing, and energy generation from wind, coal, oil, and gas. Improvements in the company's steel-making technology, design, manufacturing, and gauging have improved the bearing's durability. Based on life-cycle testing, the roller bearings offer longer predicted useful life and heavier load-carrying capacity. Tapered roller bearings are suitable for specific applications including engines, transmissions, gear boxes, pumps, compressors, and other processing equipment. Other features include a more compact, lighter bearing for improved energy efficiency on equipment.
