Spherical Roller Thrust Bearings

Spherical Roller Thrust Bearings are a special kind of bearings that excel in dealing with axial loads, making them ideal for certain high-stress applications.

What are Spherical Roller Thrust Bearings?

Spherical Roller Thrust Bearings are unique bearings specific for situations where there's heavy stress coming from one direction - also known as axial or thrust loads. This makes them highly suitable for machines that experience heavy pressure pushing side to side, or axial load, rather than up and down, or radial load.

The bearings are designed with barrel-shaped rollers arranged between a spherical raceway on the housing washer and a single spherical raceway on the shaft washer. This design ensures that they can adjust themselves in situations where there are misalignments between the washer shaft and housing.

Furthermore, our bearings come in different types of sliders including steel-on-steel and PTFE - Maintenance and even Sintered Bronze to offer you flexibility for your specific requirements.

Similar to other types in our range, these bearings have 'double lip seals' (aka 2RS), offering an additional barrier against dirt and other contaminants, ensuring longer bearing life. We also provide bearings with varying fit options - standard, loose (C3), and tight (C2) to cater to your specific installation spaces.

Whether you are dealing with side to side heavy pressure or negotiating tricky angles, our Spherical Roller Thrust Bearings offer firm support, smooth operation, and increased lifespan of your machinery.

What are spherical roller thrust bearings and how do they work?

Spherical roller thrust bearings are special bearings that help parts to move smoothly but specifically in one direction - forwards. They make use of angled rollers and can carry heavy loads, even when not everything lines up perfectly.

Where are spherical roller thrust bearings typically used?

These bearings are often found in machinery where heavy push or 'thrust' loads need to be moved in one direction. That makes them great for use in large machinery like cranes, pumps, or gearboxes, among other things.

What are the signs that my spherical roller thrust bearings might need to be replaced?

If your machine starts to make unusual noises, if it vibrates more than usual, or if the bearing looks damaged or rusty, it might be time for a replacement. Checking these regularly is a good way to catch problems before they become bigger issues.

Can I replace spherical roller thrust bearings myself, or should I get help from an expert?

If you are able and comfortable with mechanical tasks, you may be able to replace these bearings yourself. But if you're not sure, it's always a good idea to ask a professional to take a look, to ensure safety and correct functioning.
