Thrust Spherical Roller Bearing
Thrust Roller Bearings Features:
1): Able to accommodate misalignment
2): Suitable for high axial and some radial loads
3): Relatively high speed ratings
4): Heavy machine tools, high power Marine gearbox, oil rig, vertical
motor machinery, Juki hooks,
vertical pumps, vertical centrifuge, jack, low speed reducer
Description of thrust spherical roller bearings:
1. single row, self-aligning roller bearings
2. They comprise solid shaft and housing washers and asymmetrical
barrel rollers with cages.
3. The cage holds the roller and cage assembly together with the
shaft locating washer.
4. The bearings can be dismantled. The parts of the bearings can be
5. Spherical roller thrust bearings can support very high axial
loads and permit relatively high speeds. Since the raceways are at
an angle to the bearing axis, the bearings can also support radial
Thrust spherical roller bearings designs:
Bearings are produced in several designs which is mainly different
in cage as following:
Bearings in "M" design have brass cages guided by a steel sleeve on
the shaft washer.
Bearings in "J" design have pressed steel cages guided on the shaft
Bearings in "J" design are interchangable with bearings with
machined brass cage. If the bearings with machined brass cage is to
be replaced in arrangement, where the shaft washer rests on the
shaft on the face of steel sleeve which guides the cage by the
bearings in "J" design, it is necessay to insert a spacer between
the shaft washer and original shaft shoulder.
