The Timken Company has introduced the DuraSpexx Power Rating series of bearings, a line of tapered roller bearings designed to enhance performance in demanding industrial applications. This series features a 23% rating increase over standard Timken products and, as a result, doubles calculated bearing life. A bearing’s rating is one of the few design factors that can have a significant impact on the fatigue life of the bearing. Generally speaking, the higher the bearing rating, the more speed and torque that equipment can handle. The bearings are available in 8-in. to 84-in. outside diameter.
