Performance Prediction

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.

Materials

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).

Instrumentation

Any product can be machined ready to accept or supplied fitted with thermocouples or Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTD).
