A pump’s bearings are responsible for supporting the shaft and constraining motion in order to locate the impeller in the correct position both radially and axially within the pump casing. Different types of bearings are used depending on the specific application, load type, and how much motion is allowable and in which directions. Bearings used in pump systems include antifriction bearings, sleeve bearings and thrust bearings. Bearing failure is a common cause of pump downtime, making the type of bearing used an important consideration in pump design.
