Single Direction Thrust Ball Bearings

Single direction thrust ball bearings are a common type of thrust ball bearings. Single direction thrust ball bearings consist of a shaft washer, a housing washer, and a ball and cage assembly. The bearings are not self-retaining; the ball and cage assembly and bearing washers can therefore be fitted separately.

    The separable components of SKF thrust ball bearings are interchangeable. This facilitates mounting and dismounting, and maintenance inspections.
  • Initial misalignment
    Bearings with sphered housing washer(s) can accommodate initial misalignment.
  • Interference fit
    Shaft washers have a ground bore to enable an interference fit. The bore of the housing washer is turned and always larger than the shaft washer bore.
