WHIch types of bearings are used in pumps and compressors?

Angular Contact Bearings

  • Support tilting movement
  • Many tolerance options available
  • Can accept combined loads

Cylindrical Roller Bearings

  • Available in single row, double row, or multi-row
  • Can handle very high radial loads
  • Can accept relatively higher speeds than other bearing styles

Needle Roller Bearings

  • High load carrying capacity
  • Wide selection of styles
  • Withstands oscillation with greater rigidity


  • Resistant to rust
  • Can handle applications without the use of grease or oil
  • Resist chemical changes
  • Do not conduct electricity

Radial Ball Bearings

  • Effective in contaminated environments
  • Can handle high speed operations
  • Good for high precision applications

Spherical Roller Bearings

  • Self-aligning
  • Optimal for low to medium speeds
  • Deviations in shaft misalignment are more easily accepted

Spherical Roller Thrust Bearings

  • Suitable for heavy loads in extreme applications
  • High axial load carrying capability in combination with radial loads
  • Can accommodate misalignment

Tapered Roller Bearings

  • Accept both radial and thrust loads
  • Can be supplied with thru hardened material
  • Recommended for demanding operation applications
