Oiltech Bearings offers a range of standard products. Usually to suit established industry standards or specifications, these are interchangeable with many brands. Standard parts can be customised for any application.
Equalising 6 pad thrust bearings
Hardened spherical pivots with steel, bronze or CCZ backing
Modular thrust bearings
Flooded or direct lubrication.
Tilt pad journal bearings
Flooded or direct lubrication Center or offset pivot journal pads
For any application the performance of a bearing can be predicted based on input parameters such as load, speed, oil grade and oil feed temperature. Optimisation and verification at the design stage ensures reliable operation for new application or upgrades.
All products are typically manufactured using medium carbon steel backing with BS3332/A (ASTM B23 Grade 2) whitemetal (Babbitt) alloy. For high speed/high load applications; thrust pads and journal pads can be manufactured with copper-chrome-zirconium alloy (CCZ).
Any product can be machined ready to accept or supplied fitted with thermocouples or Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTD).
