T-100: Banded Thrust Bearing
This enclosed style series offers protection from dust, dirt, water and foreign matter. The balls are retained between two hardened steel races banded together by a mild steel or brass sleeve on the outside diameter. The "V" grooved raceways on this bearing enable it to carry radial loads equal to 25% of its thrust load capacity, while decreasing the amount of friction created by a full contact round groove design. The banded style of the T-100 series typically allows more balls per bearing, thus providing greater thrust capacity than a 3 piece retained style bearing of similar dimensions.
Auburn Enclosed Style T-100 Ball Thrust Bearing is recommended for use in exposed locations where protection from dust, dirt, water, or other foreign matter is required. It is self-contained; the two races and balls are held together as a single unit by the outside sleeve.

Ball Thrust Bearing Mounting Instructions
Enclosed Style T-100 Ball Thrust Bearing is generally installed so that the race "A" is centered by the shaft and rotates with it. The race with the sleeve attached to it and having a clearance bore "A'" is seated against a fixed part of the machine and is stationary. If installed in a recess, a clearance of one-eight inch or more should be left around the outside diameter "B" so that the shaft should wear in its journal bearings; the thrust bearing will be free to follow without cramping or wedging the balls.
