The initial stage of steel manufacturing process is characterized by harsh conditions. All mechanical components, which are part of the continuous casting machines, are subjected to high temperatures, which reduce bearing service life.
UNITEC can manufacture bearings with increased clearance and stabilized steel, which can work at high temperatures. For this reason two kind of bearings are suggested to be used: cylindrical roller bearings with aligning rings and split roller bearings.
Cylindrical roller bearings are able to withstand misalignment, while split roller bearings can speed up maintenance operations, reducing the costs for replacement and production loss.
Single components of the bearings, i.e. either outer rings with rollers or inner rings, are available on request.
