Timken bearing FAQS

QWhat is wheel bearing?

AA wheel bearing is a set of small steel balls which are held together in a metal ring called a race and help a wheel spin by reducing friction. Wheel bearings ride on a metal axle shaft and fits tightly inside the hub, a hollow piece of metal at the center of the wheel.

QWhat is hydraulic motor?

AA hydraulic motor is a mechanical actuator that converts hydraulic pressure and flow into torque and angular displacement (rotation). The hydraulic motor is the rotary counterpart of the hydraulic cylinder as a linear actuator. Most broadly, the category of devices called hydraulic motors has sometimes included those that run on hydropower (namely, water engines and water motors) but in today's terminology the name usually refers more specifically to motors that use hydraulic fluid as part of closed hydraulic circuits in modern hydraulic machinery.

QWhat is Hydraulic motor types?

AHydraulic motors divide into two fundamental classes: Vane motors and gear motors are simple rotating systems. Their benefits include low initial cost and high rpm. Plunger & piston motors in axial or radial configuration are more complex and made for high quality rotating drive systems. Some axial plunger & piston motors provide adjustable transfer ratio. For an explanation of plunger & piston.

QWhat is uses of hydraulic pumps?

AHydraulic pumps, motors, and cylinders can be combined into hydraulic drive systems. One or more hydraulic pumps, coupled to one or more hydraulic motors, constitute a hydraulic transmission. Hydraulic motors are used for many applications now such as winches and crane drives, wheel motors for military vehicles, self-driven cranes, excavators, conveyor and feeder drives, cooling fan drives, mixer and agitator drives, roll mills, drum drives for digesters, trommels and kilns, shredders, drilling rigs, trench cutters, high-powered lawn trimmers, and plastic injection machines. Hydraulic motors are also used in heat transfer applications.
