KAYDON thin section bearings support all load scenarios

KAYDON bearings support a shaft or housing to permit their free motion about an axis of rotation. Load can be applied to bearings in either of two basic directions. Radial loads act at right angles to the shaft (bearings axis of rotation). Axial (thr...
