Bearings for Steel Industry


Bearings for iron and steel works operate under a variety of harsh conditions, including high temperatures, high speed or super low speed operation, as well as environments contaminated with water and debris. NSK products support the stable operation of equipment under the toughest conditions.

 Product List

Plummer Blocks

High-performance SNN Series plummer blocks are highly rigid and easy to handle. They contain NSK's tough spherical roller bearings, which have high load capacity, low temperature rise and high-strength cages.

Full-Complement Cylindrical Roller Bearings for Crane Sheaves

NSK, the first company in the world to offer sealed roll neck bearings, now offers the Extra-Capacity Sealed-Clean series of roll neck bearings.

  1. Newly designed internal specifications and a new compact seal result in a high-capacity design that provides increased bearing capacity.
  2. The new main seal and seal holder are designed for easier mounting and dismounting.
  3. The new bore seal prevents the buildup of negative pressure as a measure against water infiltration.
  4. Bearing material is made from super-TF steel, which contributes to enhanced bearing life under conditions of contaminated lubrication.

WTF™ Bearings

Molded-Oil bearings are lubricated with oil-impregnated solid material, which is contained within the bearing. Oil slowly seeping from this solid lubricant material provides ample lubrication to the bearing for extended periods.

  1. Designed to prevent water and other liquids from washing out the lubricating oil while preventing dust and other contaminants from getting inside the bearing.
  2. Low-torque achieved by packing the bearing with oil-impregnated solid material after bearing surfaces have undergone a special surface treatment.
  3. Protect the working environment by eliminating stray oil mist or leakage.
  4. High-speed capability enabled through optimal composition of the solid lubricant material and methods used for the molding process.

Full-complement cylindrical roller bearings for crane sheaves that are equipped with tight seals intended to prevent intrusion of foreign matter.

  1. Contact seals provide improved sealing capability to prevent the intrusion of foreign matter and water.
  2. Large radial and axial capacity is retained for high capacity performance.
  3. Phosphate coating provides improved corrosion resistance.
  4. Grease can be replenished through the use of inner ring lubrication holes.
  5. The number of bearing peripheral parts required for mounting the bearing has been reduced through the use of snap rings on the outer ring.

CAT. No.E1206PDF(1,007KB)

Bearing life extended by threefold under conditions of water infiltration and power debris (iron oxide) contamination.

  1. Crack generation is restricted through the use ultrahigh cleanliness technology for the bearing steel as a measure against water infiltration.
  2. Chemical components of the bearing steel have been optimized in order to strengthen the grain boundary as a measure against cracks generating along the grain boundary.
  3. TF technology has been applied to the bearing steel in order to enhance service life under conditions of contaminated lubrication.

High-Capacity Cylindrical Roller Bearings EW and EM Series

Molded-Oil™ Bearings

Extra-Capacity Sealed-Clean™ Four-Row Tapered Roller Bearings

This innovative roll unit bearing provides both low-torque performance and high-sealing capability

  1. A newly developed seal structure helps to ensure low-torque performance.
  2. The seal structure, which consists of a labyrinth seal and a side seal, ensures excellent sealing performance.
  3. Prepacked with grease that offers superior durability and water resistance to ensure longer, maintenance-free performance.

CAT. No.E395PDF(6,785KB)

Through the application of NSK's innovative concepts, the EM series bearing has a greater number of larger rollers than that of a conventional bearing. Furthermore, the optimally designed one-piece cage offers high rigidity and low-wear performance.
EW Series Bearing

  1. Bearing life increased by approximately twofold.
  2. Noise and vibration levels reduced by 60 to 70 percent.
  3. Cage strength has been increased by one and a half to twofold.
  4. Limiting speed increased by 10 to 25 percent.

EM Series Bearing

  1. Bearing life increased by approximately twofold.
  2. Noise and vibration levels reduced by 40 to 50 percent.
  3. Cage strength has been dramatically improved.

S-Type Sealed-Clean Bearings for Chain Conveyors

Sealed-Clean Bearings for Sintering Pallets

Backup Roll Unit Bearings for Tension Levelers

This series of the Sealed-Clean bearing helps prevent grease from leaking onto surrounding equipment, and helps reduce maintenance costs.

  1. Specially designed contact seal offers excellent sealing performance against dirt and debris.
  2. Packed with grease that has been developed for high-temperature and high-pressure operating conditions, for high sealing performance.
  3. One-piece design with fastening ring on the inner ring facilitates easier handling and mounting.

NSK developed a series(S-Type)of tough, sealed-clean roller bearings for chain conveyors that must operate under severe conditions They feature newly designed seals (Japanese Utility Model pending) with exceptional effectiveness. These seals, combined with specially formulated grease, assure long life with no maintenance, even at high temperatures and in the presence of water and scale. Also, the inner and outer rings are made of case-hardened steel to make them resistant to shock loads for rugged operating conditions, S-Type chain-conveyor bearings are the solution to maintenance problems.

Roller Bearings for Guide Rolls of Continuous Casting Machines (CCM)

Three types of roller bearings have been developed for use in CCM guide rolls by fusing NSK's years of experience with leading-edge technology.

  1. Split cylindrical roller bearing unit for easy bearing replacement.
  2. Cylindrical roller bearing with aligning ring for preventing differential slip and misalignment.
  3. SWR bearing for dramatically improved wear resistance.
