BENEFITS

Just ONE series

The Bowman Advanced Split Roller Bearings are manufactured in just one series of bearings, meaning that its capacities can replace all four series of existing split bearings

Triple Labyrinth sealed inner housings (cartridges) only

Patent-pending 3D printed Triple Labyrinth sealed inner housings with variations to suit any seal requirement

Just two sizes of inner housing (cartridge) required

Current split bearings require 16 inner housings per series; the Bowman Advanced Split Roller Bearings only require two, one to replace the 01/light series and one to replace the 02/medium series

Interchangeable parts

All match-marked bearing components (races, clamp rings, cage & roller assemblies) are interchangeable between bearings within the same group. This enables bearings to be stocked as component parts rather than built-up items, maximising product availability whilst minimising stock holding.

Nodular iron inner and outer housings as standard

Necessary to deal with the increased loadings possible – at Bowman we haven’t just increased the bearing capacity, we’ve also uprated the inner and outer housing

Increased clamp force and dowel ability

Increased clamp force of the bearing on the shaft as well as the ability to dowel the inner race to the shaft underneath the clamp ring

Independent loads

Radial and (bi-directional) axial loads are handled independently by THREE independent sets of rolling elements – competitors use one (or two) sets of rolling elements to handle the three load directions. The Bowman Split Bearings suffer no loss of radial capacity with variation in axial load

Huge stock profile

We hold approximately 0.5 million GBP of 1.5 inch to 6 inch units in stock as well as 0.5 million GBP of the 6.5 inch to 12 inch

Easy modifications

Modifications to the core product are able to be carried out with ease and with extremely short lead times as the Bowman Advanced Split Roller Bearings require no tooling, making small quantities extremely cost-effective

Technical support

Full technical support from our dedicated Bowman Advanced Engineering team, including engineering, 3D design and product support as well as site visits, service engineers and application engineers all over the UK

Bespoke design

Bespoke bearing design and manufacturing service available with very short lead times

Compatibility

As bearing components are interchangeable, bespoke bearings can be ‘built up’ from stock items

Easy fit cages and seals

The SEALTRAIN® and ROLLERTRAIN® seals and cages have been designed for unprecedented ease of use. The seals are a simple click-fit and the cages employ unique jointing with no joint clips/spring plates

Seal modifications

Modifications such as non-standard bore, waterproof seals and flinger additions are all easily and quickly achievable

Highest radial capacity of ANY split bearing

The Bowman Advanced Split Roller Bearings radial capacity equates to either a 70% in radial load or 5x bearing L-10 life

Highest axial capacity of ANY split bearing

1000% increased axial capacity and the very first split bearing to calculate an axial L-10 life
