Quick Guide to Thrust Bearings

Torque Transmission is your source for non-metallic, fractional horsepower, motion control components. Our products excel in applications where light weight, heat resistance and survival in corrosive environments are important. 

Common Applications for Bearings

Bearings are used in a diverse range of applications. From consumer products to industrial settings, roller bearings fulfill many roles. Some of the most common applications include:

  • bearings.pngMetering equipment
  • Hydraulic valves
  • Office equipment
  • Fishing reals and down riggers
  • Pressure gauges
  • Swivel tables
  • Pumps
  • Surgical tools and equipment

As you can see, bearings turn up in many places. Because of the diversity of bearing applications, it is critical that the bearings we sell perform to the highest standards. Quality and consistency are key when it comes to bearings.

Advantages of Thrust Bearings

We combine the durability of high-grade metal balls with the self-lubricating properties of nylon to create superior bearings. Where all-steel bearings corrode in harsh environments, the nylon makes our chemical resistant bearings ideal for harsh work environments.

Additionally, because of the use of nylon our chemical resistant bearings are also lightweight and offer extremely quiet operation!
