In this illustration you can see:
This bearing is often called a precision or anti-friction bearing.
These bearings are specified for radial loads only and therefore have limited use in centrifugal pumps where a combination of radial and axial loads are present.
This illustration shows a double row roller bearing
|Sleeve or journal bearings
When do you go from anti-friction ball and roller bearings to hydrodynamic (sleeve) bearings in a centrifugal pump?
