Control Leakage, Create Damping
Bearings Plus offers a variety of damper seal technologies to ensure reliable rotordynamic operation for high-performance applications.
These sealing technologies not only control leakage but also generate damping to improve machine stability. This damping capability enables superior subsynchronous damping performance of rotating systems at high operating speeds.
Damper seals allow the addition of damping at the ideal location along the shaft, not necessarily at the bearing locations, thereby enhancing system stability. In high-pressure centrifugal compressors, they are usually implemented at the balance piston, center seal or impeller eye locations.
Our state-of-the-art engineering tools and manufacturing processes ensure compliance with precise specifications and rigorous quality standards.
