Fixed Profile Journal Bearings

Fixed profile bearings include cyclindrical, elliptical, offset halves, 3 lobed and 4 lobed bore profiles.

Tilt Pad Journal Bearings

Tilt pad journal bearings are normally 4 or 5 pad bearings. They can be made with flooded or direct lubrication and are mostly used in high speed turbomachinery.

Combined Thrust and Journal Bearings

Any type of journal bearing can be combined with a location face, taper land thrust face or tilt pad thrust bearings mounted to the body of the journal bearing.

Tilt Pad Thrust Bearings

Tilt pad thrust bearings are typically modular; meaning the larger the diameter the more thrust pads are required. Lubrication can be flooded or direct lubrication through oil nozzles. Thrust pads are typically centre or offset pivoted. Thrust pads need to be made in sets to ensure the overall height is within a very small tolerance.

Equalising Thrust Bearings

Equalising thrust bearings use a series of lever or segments underneath the thrust pads to automatically level the assembly to ensure the best load distribution across all pads.

Floating Seals and Oil Rings

Floating seals are essentially a simple whitemetal lined seal that floats on the oil film to control the amount of oil within a bearing assembly. Oil Rings can be supplied by Oiltech to deliver oil to the rotating shaft for non pressurised bearing lubrication.

Balance Piston Seals

Balance piston seals or abrasion seals are lined with a soft lining such as pure lead as they embed themselves on the shaft to ensure a good seal.

Mill Bearing Pads

Large rolling mills for mining equipment often use whitemetal (Babbitt) lined mill pads to support the rotating drum in crushers. These are very large components and therefore repair is very ecocnomical compared to new manufacturing. Our expertise in large scale static casting enquires high quality whitemetal linings for repaired mill pads.
