For applications with low axial loads, limited space and negligible misalignment, Bearings Plus designs and supplies thrust plates with simple or compound taper land faces.
Each bearing’s design is determined by the parameters of the application, including load, speed and temperature requirements.
We can custom fit most thrust bearing replacements and upgrades to the envelope of original OEM bearings while addressing challenges such as high bearing temperatures, misalignment, overload, pivot wear and babbitt fatigue.
Bearings Plus provides complete replacements, repair and rebabbitting for tilt pad and fixed profile bearings, all backed by robust quality inspections.
Bearings Plus provides custom-engineered bearing upgrades, often as a drop-in retrofit, to address system stability, vibrations, re-rates, bearing temperatures and more.
Rotordynamic analysis evaluates bearing and seal characteristics simultaneously to better understand the independent effect of each component, optimizing performance for the application.
