Thrust ball bearing
The former is able to accommodate axial load in one direction, while the latter is able to accommodate it in both directions. Neither is suitable for applications that involve radial load or high-speed rotation.
Angular Contact thrust
Angular contact ball bearings are suitable for applications which require high accuracy and good high-speed performance. This type of bearing is designed to carry a combined load.
Cylindrical roller thrust
Cylindrical roller bearings feature high radial load capacity because rollers and raceway are in linear contact. these bearings are suitable for applications that involve heavy radial and impact loading.
They are also appropriate for high-speed applications in that they can be machined very accurately due to their structure.
Having a separable inner ring or outer ring, these bearings can be mounted and dismounted easily.
Tapered roller thrust
Tapered roller bearings are designed such that outer ring, inner ring and rollers have tapered surfaces whose apexes converge at a common point on the bearing axis. Along with metric series bearings, inch series bearings are also available. This type of bearing is suitable for applications that involve heavy or impact loading.
Spherical Thrust Roller Bearings
Spherical thrust roller bearings are designed to carry high axial loads. They can also support radial load if magnitude is no more than 55% of the axial load being carried. These bearings are not suitable for high-speed rotation. Having a spherical housing washer raceway surface, these bearings are self-aligning and capable of adjusting to axial inclination. They are usually used with oil lubrication
