Thrust ball bearings

Double direction thrust ball bearing
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.

Bearing features

  • 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.
  • Initial misalignment
    Bearings with sphered housing washer(s) (fig. 5) can accommodate initial misalignment.
  • Interference fit
