With over 50 years combined experience in the design and manufacture of tilt pad journal and thrust bearings, we are capable of producing most any type of tilt pad bearings. Whether direct replacement of OEM style bearings or upgrading to Ball and Socket self aligning bearings, delivery can be completed in a very short time.
Centrifugally cast ASTM B32 Grade 2 Babbitt is used on all new manufactured parts. All components are manufactured with certified materials and certificates of conformance are available.
Thrust bearing upgrades are common with re-rated machinery. We have extensive experience in this area as well. In many cases, thrust bearing capacity can be improved by as much as 100% over existing thrust plates.
Gains in capacity of 30% to 40% can be achieved over many tilt pad thrust bearings without any modification to existing housings or cases.
