Angular contact thrust ball bearings

  1. SKF angular contact thrust ball bearings are separable, meaning that the washer, ball and cage assemblies can be mounted independently of each other.
  2. Although originally designed to support the turntables of drilling rigs, they are suitable for other applications as well.
  3. Angular contact thrust ball bearings have inner and outer ring raceways that are displaced relative to each other in the direction of the bearing axis.

  4. This means that these bearings are designed to accommodate combined loads, i.e. simultaneously acting radial and axial loads.

  5. The axial load carrying capacity of angular contact ball bearings increases as the contact angle increases.

Product types, designs and variants

Single direction angular contact thrust ball bearings

Thrust ball bearings are designed to withstand thrust loads during high-speed operation, and consist of washer-shaped rings with raceway grooves for ball rolling.One-way thrust angular contact ball bearings can bear one-way axial load.

Double direction angular contact thrust ball bearings

Two-way thrust angular contact ball bearings can withstand two-way axial loads, and the shaft ring is matched with the shaft. The seat ring mounting surface is a spherical bearing, which has self-aligning performance and can reduce the influence of installation errors.

Loads are defined by their direction. Loads perpendicular to the shaft are called radial loads and loads parallel to the shaft are called axial (thrust) loads.

DGBB can carry axial loads in both directions, whereas angular contact ball bearings can only carry axial loads in one direction.

Seals and shields provide additional protection for the bearing components and help to improve and maintain lubrication. In terms of sealing performance, sealed bearings rank best, followed by shielded bearings and finally open bearings.

Deep groove ball bearings are available in a large number of sizes with different seals, shields, cages, and greases.

Successful mounting is critical to the life cycle of your bearing. Proper bearing dismounting can safeguard other machine components and maintenance workers.

The bearing is at the heart of all rotating equipment, and the condition of the bearing often reflects how well a machine is running. Learn more about bearing damage and bearing failure – and how to prevent it.
