Bearings for The Mining, Aggregate and Material Processing Industries

Scheerer Bearing manufactures bearings for the mining, excavating, and mineral process industries that perform exceptionally well under severe operating conditions. Extreme mining environments are tough on all types of equipment:

  • Jaw and Cone Rock Crushers
  • Vibrating Screens
  • Conveyors
  • Off-Road Dump Trucks
  • Feed Systems
  • Excavators

Scheerer produces industrial grade bearings that interchange directly with all major bearing brands used in mining, stone quarries, mineral processing plant equipment and mobile machinery. Many excavation, construction and industrial mining equipment bearings are optimized with required periodic inspections, lubrication, and maintenance.

For your mining industry bearings, you can count on Scheerer for superior quality products and a quick turn around on the reconditioning of damaged bearings. Scheerer offers a competitive advantage for cost-control, and operational efficiency.

Some of the more common heavy-duty bearings for this industry are:

Double Row Spherical Roller Bearings

Spherical roller bearings are capable of carrying heavy loads in both radial and axial directions. Due to their self-aligning design, they are capable of adjusting for angular misalignment between inner and outer ring without any effect on bearing performance. They are available in a variety of standard and specialized designs, including cylindrical or tapered bore options.

If you have damaged bearings, you can send them to Scheerer Bearing for a thorough evaluation for bearing repair or reverse engineering eligibility.


Roller Thrust Bearings – Heavy Duty

Roller thrust bearings have the highest possible axial load capacity for a envelope cross section, making them capable of operating in shock prone applications with high safety margins. They provide rigid bearing support, offer high operational reliability and  typically boast long service lifecycles.

Conveyor Bearings for Mining and Material Processing

Conveyors use full complement cylindrical roller bearings to provide the highest possible radial load capacities by maximizing the number of rollers. Conveyor bearings are designed with the maximum number of rollers for very heavy radial loads; this design incorporates a low sectional height as compared to its width, giving you increased equipment reliability with lower installed weight.

Radial Cylindrical Roller Bearings

Cylindrical roller bearings are one of the most widely used types of bearings today. Most are designed to carry heavy radial loads. The smaller, more common single row cylindrical roller bearings are often manufactured in large volumes and Scheerer maintains a healthy inventory. In addition, we also specialize in custom bearings with bore diameters from 2 inches up to 80 inches (50 mm to over 2,000 mm).

You Know in Advance What You Are Getting and How Much it Will Cost

When your bearing arrives for reconditioning, a thorough inspection and inspection is conducted in our testing facility to determine its condition. Scheerer Bearing’s rating system determines the parts, labor, and materials needed to restore a bearing to the original manufacturer’s specifications. A detailed quote is provided including price, options, and estimated time to complete the project. Our quote enables you to decide whether it is more economical to repair or purchase a new bearing. All refurbished bearings are tested for fit, functionality, component integrity, load testing, and life expectancy. Reconditioned bearings are guaranteed for one year to be free of any material or manufacturer defects.

Reconditioning Large
Bearings for Clients

Scheerer Bearing routinely rebuilds large bearings to original specifications. Bearing reconditioning and refurbishing capabilities include radial bearings, thrust bearings and customized bearings, all ranging in size from 2” I.D. to 100” O.D. Scheerer Bearing will rebuild any type or style of bearing from many different manufacturers.
