Thrust ball bearings
SKF supplies standard thrust ball bearings (fig. 1) in various dimension series for shaft diameters ranging from 10 to 45 mm. Thrust ball bearings consist of polymer washers and a full complement ball set. The ball set per bearing consists of two different ball materials to reduce friction and frictional heat. Balls made of the selected material are fitted alternately with balls made of the same polymer as the washers.
Thrust ball bearings have a full complement ball set and do not have a cage.
