Real World Thrust Bearing Applications

Thrust bearings turn up in a lot of places. From valves to pressure gauges to surgical tools, thrust bearings make their way into a wide variety of industries and applications. Over the years we’ve had the opportunity to work with a number of companies that represent a vast array of thrust bearing applications so we thought we’d share with you some of those specific, real-world applications.

Carbon Steel vs. Stainless Steel Bearings

Bearings are a common machine element that is designed to reduce the friction between moving parts and constrain motion to only the desired motion. Ball bearings and roller bearings reduce sliding friction by using balls within the outer and inner ring of the bearing. Because the purpose of a bearing is to prevent friction, it is important that the construction materials of the bearing are strong enough to withstand the constant ...

Large Diameter Thrust Bearings

Designed to permit motion between two parts while supporting an axial load, thrust bearings  need to combine both strength and bearing life.  Most thrust bearings use all metal fabrication, for maximum strength, but all metal bearing retainer lack a number of benefits that our combination of nylon retainer and hardened carbon steel thrust bearing washers provide.

Thrust Bearings Feature Natural Lubricity

Lubricity is important because it reduces the friction and wear on moving components. Many power transmission components use grease or oil to add much needed lubricity. Torque Transmission’s thrust bearings, which include Nylon retainers do not require grease and here’s why.
