Tapered roller bearings

Tapered roller bearings are can be taken apart, since the inner ring with the roller and cage assembly and the outer ring can be assembled separately. The modified linear contact between the rollers and the raceways prevent edge stresses. Tapered roller bearings can support high radial and axial loads. Since the bearings can only support axial loads in one direction, as well as for supporting internal aligning forces, a second laterally-reversed tapered roller bearing is required for counterstay.
