Self-aligning thrust roller bearings

Axial spherical roller bearings are single row units comprising a shaft locating washer, housing locating washer and asymmetrical barrel rollers with cages. The cage holds the roller and cage assembly and the shaft locating washer together. The bearings can be dismantled. As a result, the bearing components can be fitted separately.

Due to the geometry of the rolling elements and raceway, axial spherical roller bearings feature angular adjustability, which can compensate for shaft deflections and misalignments of the bearing seats.

Further key features in addition to angular adjustability are the high radial and very high axial load carrying capacity, even in the presence of shock type loads.
