Thrust ball bearings
SKF thrust ball bearings are manufactured as single direction (fig. 1
) or double direction (fig. 2
) thrust ball bearings. They are designed to accommodate axial loads only and must not be subjected to any radial load.
Separable and interchangeable
The separable components of SKF thrust ball bearings are interchangeable (fig. 3, fig. 4). This facilitates mounting and dismounting, as well as maintenance inspections.
Bearings with sphered housing washer(s) (fig. 5) can accommodate initial misalignment.
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.
In addition to the bearings presented in this section, SKF supplies thrust ball bearings for special application requirements. This assortment includes:
