Self-lubricating Angular Contact Spherical Plain Bearing

While quietly operating, self-lubricating angular contact spherical plain bearings can support high thrust loads, as well as radial loads. The full profile of these self-aligning bearings is listed below.

Where They are Used

  • They can be used in low speed, very high thrust and radial load applications, and where self-lubricating is required or re-lubrication can’t be carried out.
  • They can be an alternative to taper roller bearings.

Maintenance-free and saves re-lubrication system in the housing or shaft

Supporting very high thrust load
as well as radial load

Very long service life


  • Sliding surfaces are metal to PTFE
  • Inner ring and outer ring are made of hardened rolling bearing steel
  • Spherical surface of inner ring is chrome plated
  • High strength PTFE fabric with low coef. of friction is bonded to spherical surface of outer ring
  • They can support very high thrust loads as well as radial loads
  • Operating quietly
  • They are self-aligning in all directions
