Cylindrical roller thrust bearings

Cylindrical roller thrust bearings are suitable for arrangements that have to support heavy axial loads. Furthermore, they are relatively insensitive to shock loads, are very stiff and require little axial space. As standard they are available as single direction bearings and can only accommodate axial loads acting in one direction.
Cylindrical roller thrust bearings are simple in form and design and are produced in single row (fig 1) and double row (fig 2) designs. The bearings in the 811 and 812 series are mainly used where thrust ball bearings have insufficient load carrying capacity.
The cylindrical surface of the rollers is slightly relieved towards the ends. The resulting contact profile virtually eliminates damaging edge stresses. The bearings are of separable design; the individual components can be mounted separately.

Components

For applications where
  • the faces of adjacent machine components can serve as raceways and slim bearing arrangements are required or
  • other combinations of cylindrical roller and cage thrust assembles and washers are required, e.g. with two shaft or housing washers,

it is possible to order the components
  • cylindrical roller and cage thrust assemblies K (fig 3)
  • shaft washers WS (fig 4)
  • housing washers GS (fig 5)

separately, see product table.

Raceway washers of the LS series (see section Needle roller thrust bearings - Bearing washers) may be used for bearings in the 811 series both as shaft and as housing washers where accurate centring of the washers is not needed or where low speeds are involved.

Double direction bearings

Double direction bearings can easily be assembled by combining appropriate shaft washers in the WS 811 series or housing washers in the GS 811 series with two cylindrical roller and cage thrust assemblies in the K 811 series and a suitable intermediate washer with internal centring (fig 6) or external centring (fig 7).
These intermediate washers should have the same quality and hardness as the bearing washers. Recommendations for intermediate washer dimensions will be supplied on request. Guideline values for the dimensional, form and running accuracy are provided in the section Design of associated components.
