Oil & Gas

Bearings Plus has served the oil & gas downstream market since its founding 25 years ago. Today, we service fluid film bearings and seals across the oil & gas supply chain.

As companies demand longer life from their equipment, as well as greater reliability, availability, and performance, expert bearing repairs, analysis and upgrades become ever more critical. Bearings Plus is proud to provide this expertise, backed by a long list of successes.

Power Generation

Requirements for increased power density and operational flexibility at power generation facilities create new challenges for rotor-bearing systems. Premature and unnecessary bearing failure can contribute to downtime and maintenance headaches, along with labor, safety and environmental concerns.

Regardless of the application, Bearings Plus has the knowledge and engineering expertise to help power plants adapt to changes, improve machine reliability and performance, and maximize profit.

Compressor vibration trend

Long-term Solution to Vibrations

Over a 13-year span, a major South American oil company’s maintenance department fought recurring high vibrations in three gas reinjection compressor trains. Based on a thorough analysis of the compressors and an inspection of damaged components, Bearings Plus proposed a two-part solution.
Steam turbine for power generation

Achieving Full Power Output

For a power generation customer in Scandinavia, Doosan Škoda Power engineered a 46 MW steam turbine as part of a combined cycle system. When high subsynchronous vibrations forced a trip in turbine operation at just 27 MW versus the rated 46 MW, Bearings Plus stepped in with a damper solution.
Overhung blower bearing design - Flexure Pivot tilt pad journal bearing with ISFD technology

Increased Production

At the Dow Chemical Company operation in Deer Park, Texas, product buildup on an overhung blower was leading to mass imbalance and high synchronous vibrations that could cause catastrophic failure. The company brought in Bearings Plus to provide a greater stability margin and reduce the sensitivity to imbalance.
