V – Vertical Thrust Bearing

The V Series Vertical Thrust Bearing Assembly is a self contained thrust and radial bearing assembly, with a integral water cooling system. They are designed by KCE utilising our standard M Series thrust bearings with offset pivots and journal pads. The KCE V Series is interchangeable with other OEM designs with the same interface geometry.

Customisation and Application Support
Assemblies can be customised to suit your requirements and instrumentation. Performance analysis provided by KCE will ensure suitable size selection for your application requirements.

Upgrade to Equalising Thrust
To increase load capacity and improve reliability, V series bearings can be manufactured using a standard Q Series (compact equalising) thrust assembly for the lower thrust bearing to increase reliability and load capacity.
