Steel-on-Steel Double Direction Thrust Bearings
Spherical Plain Bearings requiring maintenance (steel-on-steel) have hardened sliding contact surfaces on both rings. The surfaces are typically treated with molybdenum disulphide and phosphate. It provides added wear resistance and wear-corrosion. However, Spherical Plain Bearings with this sliding contact surface combination require regular relubrication. The high strength of the sliding contact surfaces makes these bearings especially suitable for bearing arrangements where heavy loads of alternating direction, shock loads, or heavy static loads have to be accommodated.
The Double Direction Thrust Series have been specially designed to handle bidirectional axial thrust loads far better than standard spherical plain bearings. AST’s double direction thrust spherical plain bearings are measured dimensionally in inches and have bores ranging from 1¼ to 5½ inches with dynamic load ratings ranging from 22,225 to 332,696 lbs. (Cr).
