Tilting Pad Thrust Bearings – Just One of Many Types of Thrust Bearings on the Market

Thrust bearings are specific types of bearings that are based on the design and functionality of your typical rolling-element bearings. Just like all other bearings on the market, their main function is to support rotational movements between two parts. They are most often required to help in the support of axial loads.

At Technoslide, we offer specialised tilting pad thrust bearings to the market, which are just one of the types of thrust bearings available on the market. Let’s take a look at the thrust bearing variety, as well as some of the other types of thrust bearings that you can expect to encounter:

  • Tilting pad thrust bearings – these are used in low thrust applications where the support of an axial load is required.
  • Cylindrical thrust roller bearings – these bearings are often cost effective and offer very good carrying capacity. They need to be maintained and watched though, as they can wear quite easily.
  • Fluid bearings – these bearings offer a low drag, as a result of a thin layer of pressured liquid that supports the axial thrust.
  • Magnetic bearings – with these bearings, a magnetic field is used to provide support to the axial load. These bearings are ideal for use in applications that operate with very high speed or have a requirement for a very low drag.
