What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Disc Bearings?


Disc Bearing Advantages:

  • Disc Bearings are multi-rotational.
  • Disc Bearings have relatively high vertical load capacity and medium-high to medium horizontal load capacity.
  • Disc Bearings require less maintenance than Pot Bearings.
  • Disc Bearings are usually low in overall height.

Disc Bearing Disadvantages:

  • Disc Bearings still require some periodic maintenance.
  • Disc Bearings exhibit more vertical deflection than Pot Bearings.
  • Disc Bearings exhibit varying degrees of vertical deflection from bearing to bearing.
