CHASE supplies Michell Bearings’ whitemetal (babbitt) and PTFE lined bearings for industrial applications.
Tilting Pad Bearings
Michell Bearings offers several standard ranges of tilting pad bearings for radial journal pad unit applications:
- Steam Turbines
- Gas Turbines
- Hydro Generators
- Turbo Compressors
We supply various designs of journal bearings, all of which can be customised to suit your application.
The standard range of journal bearing pad units have a steel housing seating five uniquely designed centre-pivoted journal pads. The journal pads are manufactured to give a preload profile at their working face. This ensures that a pressure generating, hydro-dynamic oil wedge is formed between the journal pads and shaft journal, even under the lightest of loads.
The standard thrust bearing configurations can be supplied either as full rings or in halves with special features if required. Alternatively, we can design thrust bearings specific to your individual application.
