DUNLOP Thrust ball bearings are separable axial bearings that are produced in both single and double direction acting design.
To assist in simple effective mounting or dismounting the bearing washers, seating, and cage and ball assemblies, may be individually mounted in their arrangement location.
Thrust ball bearings may accommodate comparatively high axial loads, but they must not be exposed to any radial forces.
Due to their specific kinematics behaviour, thrust bearings are only suitable for low to medium operating speeds. Furthermore, they require minimum axial loads for their optimum function.
Since thrust ball bearings do not compensate any misalignment, they are also frequently used in conjunction with sphered housing washers or with both sphered housing washers and seating washers.
