American supplies numerous bearings in various power generation equipment, including modern wind-powered devices.
Bearings Used in Power Generation Industry
Coal-fired power plants and hydro-electric dams generate most of the electricity generated in America. In the coal-fired facilities American Roller Bearings operate daily in the coal pulverizers - used to crush the coal into powder at the beginning of the power generation process. At the hydro-electric dams, our bearings are used in the water turbines, and on the dam gates.
Large radial and thrust cylindrical roller bearings are used in vertical coal pulverizers. Cylindrical and tapered roller bearings provide the main support function in ball mills.

- Wind Turbines
Bearings We Offer
American Roller Bearing primarily makes heavy duty bearings that are used in various industries in the US and around the world. Not only must our industrial class bearings provide long in-service life from a rolling fatigue criterion, but they must also hold together structurally from impacts, overloads and occasional high speed excursions. The design of every heavy duty bearing has been optimized to this end, including our large bore bearings.
