Thrust Bearings:

Thrust bearings are comprised of components which support axial loads, and little to no radial loads. Types include tapered, cylindrical, spherical, and needle roller thrust bearings, thrust ball bearings, fluid-film thrust bearings, and magnetic thrust bearings.

Product Name Notes
Cylindrical Needle Roller and Cage Thrust Assemblies Cylindrical roller thrust bearings provide rolling bearing arrangements which can accommodate high dynamic axial loads as well as shock loads. The simple geometry of the cylindrical roller thrust bearing components...
Cylindrical Roller Thrust Bearings -- TP (standard) Designed to operate under heavy loads at moderate speed, standard versions of type TS bearings can be operated at peripheral speeds of up to 3,000 feet per minute. Special design...
Needle Roller and Cage Thrust Assemblies, Thrust Washers Needle roller and cage thrust assemblies are complements of small diameter needle rollers arranged in a spoke-like configuration. Needle rollers are equally spaced by means of a cage whose web...
Cylindrical Roller Thrust Bearings -- TPS (aligning washer) The TPS type cylindrical thrust bearing is similar to type TP, except the bottom washer is comprised of two races, with the contacting faces spherically ground. The TPS bearing is...
Tapered Roller Thrust Bearings -- TTVF (Standard) The type TTVF V-Flat bearing design includes one flat washer and one with a tapered raceway matching the rollers. This bearing type has exceptional dynamic capacity within a given envelope...
Tapered Roller Thrust Bearings -- TTVS (Self-Aligning) The type TTVS V-Flat bearing design includes one flat washer and one with a tapered raceway matching the rollers. The lower washer is constructed of two pieces to permit self-alignment...
Tapered Roller Thrust Bearings -- TTSV & TTSX (screw down bearings) Timken offers two types of screw down bearings – types TTSV and TTSX. Both types consist of a full roller complement design without a conventional bore. Screw down tapered thrust...
Crossed Roller Thrust Bearings Timken's crossed roller bearings (TXRs) are designed to offer the highest levels of rotation accuracy and rigidity while conserving space and saving material costs. Able to withstand high overturning moments,...
Tapered Roller Thrust Bearings -- TTHD (Heavy Duty) TTHD bearings consist of two thrust races, a set of rollers and a cage. This design can create up to 40 percent more capacity than cylindrical and spherical bearings with...
Tapered Roller Thrust Bearings -- TTSP (oscillating, with cage) TTSPs are thrust bearings are made up of two tapered thrust races, rollers, a cage and outside retainer which holds the components together during shipping. These bearings are mostly used...
Ball Thrust Bearings -- TVB (standard axial) TVB type ball thrust bearings provide optimum performance in high speed applications. TVBs provide axial rigidity but are not recommended for applications experiencing any radial loads. Size range: 127 mm...
Ball Thrust Bearings -- DTVL (angular contact, thrust load only) Type DTVL ball thrust bearings have an upper and lower complement of angular contact balls and three race elements. The design is capable of carrying a thrust load in one...
Spherical Roller Thrust Bearings Type TSR spherical roller thrust bearings are designed to achieve a high thrust capacity with low friction and continuous roller alignment. This bearing type is ideal for operating conditions that...
Ball Thrust Bearings -- TVL (angular contact, some radial loading) Type TVL ball thrust bearings provide exceptionally low friction, cool running and quiet operation at high speeds and also are less sensitive to misalignment. TVLs are designed for thrust loading,...
Tapered Roller Thrust Bearings -- TTC & TTCS (oscillating, cageless) Types TTC & TTCS are cageless bearings consisting of two tapered thrust races, rollers and an outside retainer. TTC and TTCS types are identical with the exception of the retainer...
Unitized Needle Thrust Bearing Assemblies Unitized thrust bearing and washer assemblies allow for easy installation and eliminate the need for heat treatment and precision finishing of one or both thrust bearing backup surfaces. Special features...
