Single Row Angular Contact Ball Bearings are designed to accommodate axial loads in one direction only. A single row angular Contact ball bearing is adjusted against a second bearing following different arrangements . i.e back to back, Face to Face or Tendem.
The bearing rings have one high and one low shoulder through which contact angle is maintained.
The contact angle in between rings is 40 degrees. The axial Load carrying capacity of angular contact ball bearing increases with increasing contact angle.
