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 100 m/s depending on design
  • One or two thrust directions
  • Split design permits easy installation
  • Tilting pads balance shaft misalignments
  • One or two directions of rotation
