Tilting Pad Thrust Bearings

It is important to know about the various types of bearings available on the market, so that you can make correct choices for your applications. Bearings are used in a variety of heavy-duty applications and as such, they must be best suited to the task at hand and must also be exceptionally durable and reliable.

When it comes to tilting pad thrust bearings, the function is quite specialised. In fact, other bearings cannot support the same movement in machinery, equipment and applications that these bearings are required in. A tilting pad thrust bearing is designed to be able to transfer a high axial load from a rotating or moving shaft, without losing power. This particular function helps to make the installation process and maintenance thereafter, absolutely simple.

When shopping around on the market, you will find that the shaft diameters for which these bearings are designed come fairly standard. They typically range from 20mm to 1 000mm or more, and you can expect for these to be able to handle loads of between half and five hundred tonnes. These would be considered standard bearings. If you are looking for tilting pad thrust bearings to handle loads larger than 500 tonnes, you will need to order non-standard bearings by special order.

At Technoslide, we design and manufacture bearings of standard specification and according to customer specifications. Each bearing will consist of a series of pads. These pads obtain their support from the carrier ring that they are within. Each pad tilts freely, thus earning the bearing its name as a tilting pad thrust bearing.
