 Ball Thrust Bearings | Products | The Timken Company 

Thrust ball bearings provide optimum performance in high-speed applications, particularly where loads are generally lighter. Timken offers angular contact (types TVL and DTVL) thrust ball designs.
TVL (angular contact, single row)

Type TVL thrust ball bearings provide exceptionally low friction, cool running and quiet operation at high speeds. While we designed type TVL exclusively for thrust loading, it will accommodate some radial loading.

DTVL (angular contact, double row)

Type DTVL thrust ball bearings are capable of carrying thrust loads in one direction, plus a lighter thrust in the opposite direction. Timken designed this type with an upper and lower complement of contact balls and three race elements.
