Pedestal bearing ‒ SC type

RENK pedestal bearings in the SC range are optimized for stationary use as radial bearings in land applications and can also absorb moderate axial loads. They are primarily used in electrical machines.
The versions can be assembled from a modular system depending on the needs of the respective situation. The SC range of bearings was constructed in such as way that it can also be used together with the familiar E bearing range. The shaft heights and the drilling pattern of the foot mount, for example, match those of the E bearings to a large extent.
Frictional heat is dissipated by radiation and convection alone in many cases. Two lubricant coolers made of seawater resistant material can also be used in the housing, and integrated baffles boost the cooling performance.

Engine bearing ‒ SM type

RENK flange-mounted bearings in the SM series were specially developed for use as an engine bearing in naval applications. Designed for steeply inclined positions, the construction enables self-lubricating and therefore extremely quiet operation.

Rolling mill bearing – WG type

RENK rolling mill bearings in the WG range are designed for extreme axial strain. They were developed primarily for the mounting of rolling mill drive units and large electrical machines in which high axial loads occur at low speeds and a high level of protection against damage must be ensured at extreme loads.
