Tilting Pad Bearings

Discover the Benefits of Using Technoslide Tilting Pad Bearings

Bearings play a vital role in many industries and applications not only in South Africa, but globally as well. At Technoslide, our tilting pad bearings are of the best in the world. They offer efficiency, reliability and undeniable quality. At Technoslide, we don’t just recommend and sell bearings. Our team can design, develop and manufacture such a bearing according to existing designs or according to your unique specifications. When opting for our range of tilting pad bearings, you can expect the following:

  • Bearings with hand lapped spherical pivots that are precision ground.
  • Flawless pad to journal alignment to avoid pad edge loading, which can be caused if the bearing cannot accurately align.
  • Suppression of damping and vibration is made possible due to the bearing maintaining high pivot stiffness values.
  • Minimal pivot wear and reduced direct housing wear, which ensure increased damping and vibration suppression, as well as reduced pivot stress.
  • Reduced operating bearing temperatures to ensure greater heat dissipation.
  • Reduction of Babbitt fatigue to increase Babbitt life.
