Thrust ball bearings

• Single direction thrust ball bearings.
• Single direction thrust ball bearings with outer spherical washer.
• Double direction thrust ball bearings.
• Double direction thrust ball bearings with outer spherical washer.
Single direction thrust ball bearings ISB single direction thrust ball bearings are manufactured to withstand loads acting in just one direction and to bind the shaft on one side. They are not suitable to withstand radial loads. This specific type of bearing consists of shaft washer with grooved raceway, a cage complete with balls and a housing washer (or outer washer) again with a grooved raceway. This last washer may have a flat or spherical support surface based on specific requirements. The components can be applied separately because the bearings are separable and easy to assemble.
Double direction thrust ball bearings This specific type of bearing is able to withstand loads acting on both sides, consequently they are able to bind the shaft on both sides. Likewise for the single direction thrust ball bearings, they cannot withstand radial loads. ISB® double direction thrust ball bearings consist of a housing washer (or outer washer) with groove. These last two washers may have a flat or spherical support surface based on specific requirements.
This type of bearing can compensate an initial misalignment using self-aligning plates, again with spherical surfaces. The double direction bearings are also separable and the housing washers and the cage-ball assemblies are the same as the corresponding single direction bearings.
