What is a thrust washer?
Thrust washers are flat washers that are located between a rotating surface and a stationary component. They support the axial load or side to side motion on a shaft and prevent movement along that shaft. The thrust washer provides a surface on to which a bearing is supported. They are made to be used in high-wear applications.
Where are thrust washers used?
They are used in high-wear applications such as axle assemblies, motors, transmissions, pumps, power take-offs, and winches. Just about any application that needs a wear surface.
What materials are thrust washers manufactured from?
Thrust washer material is determined by the application. Choice of material is determined by several factors such as speed, load, and temperature. Thrust washers may be produced from plastic, brass, bronze, stainless steel, graphite, or various other materials. The majority of thrust washers are made from low and high carbon steel. The carbon steel is may be either case hardened or thru hardened.
