Thrust Ball Bearings
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.
In addition to the bearings presented in this section, SKF supplies thrust ball bearings for special application requirements. This assortment includes bearings with Solid Oil and NoWear coated bearings.
Features and benefits
- Separable and interchangeable
The separable components of SKF thrust ball bearings are interchangeable. This facilitates mounting and dismounting, and maintenance inspections.
- Initial misalignment
Bearings with sphered housing washer(s) can accommodate initial misalignment.
- Interference fit
Shaft washers have a ground bore to enable an interference fit. The bore of the housing washer is turned and always larger than the shaft washer bore.
Here are examples of applications in which thrust ball bearings might be used:
- Industrial fans
- Industrial pumps
- Industrial transmissions
- Mining, mineral processing and cement
