Thrust Bearings

Hydrodynamic, wear-free thrust bearings carry loads which act along the axis of the shaft. They can be combined with journal bearings. Depending on the application thrust bearings will be designed with fixed wedges or tilting pads.

  • Circumferential speed up to 40 m/s
  • Load up to 5 MPa
  • Split design permits easy installation
  • One or two directions of rotation possible
  • Substantially more cost effective than copper alloys
