Thrust ball bearings are classified into those with flat seats or aligning seats depending on the shape of the outer ring seat (housing washer). They can sustain axial loads but no radial loads.
For Single-Direction Thrust Ball Bearings, pressed steel cages and machined brass cages are usually used The cages in Double- Direction Thrust Ball Bearings are the same as those in Single-Direction Thrust Ball Bearings of the same diameter series.
Available in two designs: single direction and double direction.
To accommodate initial misalignments in an assembly both designs are available with spherical aligning seats or aligning seat washers.
High quality steel-ultra clean steel to extend bearing life by up to 80%.
High Grade Balls — Quiet and smooth operation even at high speed.
Optional seating rings take initial misalignment.
Thrust Ball Bearings are used in industrial applications, where there are heavy loads, moderate speeds and possibly misalignment. Some common application areas are:
