Abstract
The High Load Roller Bearing (HLRB) roller for severe service offers a zero-maintenance reliable replacement for bearing sets currently utilized on DDG-51 helicopter bay hanger doors. Enhanced seal design prevents the ingress of liquids and particulates even under extreme environmental conditions and extreme off axis loading. Intended as a direct replacement, modifications to ship doors or structures will not be required. By utilizing advanced materials, coatings and manufacturing processes in concert with field proven designs, the HLRB yields a unique solution applicable for the shipboard use and a host of future high endurance applications.
