Radial Spherical Plain Bearings

Radial Spherical Plain Bearings Characteristics

Where They are Used

They are used in low speed, and high radial load applications like:

  • Steering axles
  • Hydraulic cylinders
  • Steering linkages
  • Pivots

Simple Maintenance

High Reliability


Long Life


  • Sliding surfaces are metal to metal
  • Outer ring and inner ring are made of hardened rolling bearing steel
  • Single or double fractured outer ring
  • They can support high radial loads
  • They can support high impact loads
  • They are self-aligning in all direction
  • There are multiple grooves in outer ring to dispense and maintain grease easily
  • Lip seals prevent water and contaminants
  • Phosphate coating and molybdenum disulfide coating can help in running-in phase and avoid galling and seizure
