Skf thrust bearing

  1. SKF thrust ball bearings are manufactured as single direction or double direction thrust ball bearings. They are designed to accommodate axial loads only and must not be subjected to any radial load.
  2. In addition to the bearings presented in this section, supplies Skf thrust bearing for special application requirements. This assortment includes bearings with Solid Oil and NoWear coated bearings.
  3. Thrust ball bearings are designed to carry axial (thrust) loads at high speeds, but they cannot carry any radial loads. These Skf thrust bearing feature bearing washers with raceway grooves in which the balls move.

Product types, designs and variants

Single-Direction Thrust Ball Bearings

Single-direction thrust ball bearings are comprised of two bearing washers (a shaft washer and a housing washer) and a single cage containing the balls. They can sustain axial loads in one direction.
Double-Direction Thrust Ball Bearing

Double-Direction Thrust Ball Bearings

Double-direction thrust ball bearings use three washers, with two cages containing the balls. This shaft washer is sandwiched between the two cages, allowing the bearing to take axial loads in both directions.

Features and Benefits

  1. Separable and interchangeable
    The separable parts of SKF axial ball bearings are interchangeable.

  2. This facilitates mounting and dismounting, as well as maintenance checks.
    Initial misalignment
    Bearings with Skf thrust bearing spherical housing washers can accommodate initial misalignment.

  3. Interference fit
    The shaft collar has a ground hole that allows for an interference fit.

  4. The bore of the housing washer is rotated and is always larger than the bore of the shaft washer.

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.

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

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