    Answer is absolutely wrong as taper roller bearing can carry both radial as well as axial load.

    • Taper roller bearings and spherical roller thrust bearings carry load in one direction. If load needs to be transmitted in both directions taper roller bearings are used in pairs.

    • Conical rollers running on conical races are used in tapered roller bearings.

    • Spherical roller bearings are thicker in middle and thinner at ends. They accommodate both dynamic and static misalignment. These bearings are expensive and have high friction than taper roller bearings.
