Spherical Roller Thrust Bearings

The raceway in the housing washer is spherical, making spherical roller thrust bearings self-aligning and insensitive to shaft misalignment. The design incorporates a large number of rollers irregularly arranged rollers.
These bearings are suitable for very high axial loads and are capable of taking moderate radial loads when axial load is applied. Pressed steel and machined brass cages are available.
