Tapered Roller Thrust Bearings
Single direction tapered roller thrust bearings consist of one shaft washer, one housing washer and one cage with tapered rolling elements. They can absorb very high axial forces from one direction while radial loads must be avoided. Due to the high number of tapered rolling elements which move on the tapered raceways of the bearing washers, tapered roller thrust bearings are very rigid. They are non-latching, so the bearing washers and the cage with roller set can be installed separately.
Absorption of heavy axial loads and peak loads
High rigidity and require little axial space
Better suited for speeds than cylindrical roller thrust bearings
Dimensions and Tolerances
The boundary dimensions of the bearings are standardised in ISO 104 and DIN 616. ALPHA Wälzlager GmbH supplies tapered roller thrust bearings with normal tolerance (PN) in accordance to DIN 620-3 and ISO 199. Please contact our technical department to check the availability of bearings with improved accuracy class or special tolerances.
Clearance for tapered roller thrust bearings is adjusted after installation according to operating conditions.
