Full Complement Thrust Bearings
Some applications require a relatively inexpensive, high-capacity thrust bearing for very slow speed applications such as hooks, swivels, tubing rotators, or rotating liner hangers. For these types of applications, Tackpoint offers full-complement roller assemblies.
Designs may be manufactured for sealed and unsealed assemblies in both regular and stainless steel. Ball, cylindrical, and tapered rollers may be used depending on your specific requirements. If the bearing's rolling elements are not captured within the design using inboard flanges, a plastic insert is used during packaging so loose rollers will stay in place during handling and initial installation.
The true rolling geometry of a full complement tapered roller bearing enables much higher thrust loading with reduced heat and internal friction. The assembly can be unitized by using two running O-ring snaps in the bore of the outer sleeve. This restricts the separation of the races within the tapered diameter of the roller (Patent pending).
