Tapered Roller Thrust Bearings

What are Tapered Roller Thrust Bearings?

This is a rigid variant of tapered roller bearings that can manage combined loads. However, this variant is ideally suited for heavy axial loads and especially peak loads. Tapered Roller Thrust Bearings are therefore stiff because of which they also require minimal axial space. 

Features of Tapered Roller Thrust Bearings

Tapered roller thrust bearing variants enhance the original property of a tapered bearing which is to act as a thrust bearing to manage axial load. The distinct features are: 

  • Axial loads when combined with high speeds need a steady and rigid bearing like this. 
  • The bearing handles heavy loads in challenging conditions for optimum performance. 
  • The components are separable therefore can be assembled to custom designs, and specifications needed for specific application.

Benefits of Tapered Roller Thrust Bearings

  • Separable design: The bearing shaft, housing washers, roller and cage of thrust assembly can be mounted separately. This makes the design customisable and flexible to the application needs.
  • Low friction optimisation: The roller end and surface end on the flange are designed to promote self lubrication through hydrodynamic lubricant film formation which ensures lower friction and heat. This also enhances the lifetime of the flange to a great extent.
  • Long bearing life: The raceway profiles are designed to optimise the load distribution along contact surface. This reduces the roller end stress and sensitivity to misalignment.
  • High load bearing capacity: The rollers are designed keeping dimensional and geometrical tolerances and are identical for every piece. This helps in optimal load distribution and empowers bearings to bear heavy axial loads.
