Bearings Plus

Improved Efficiency & Service Life

Bearings Plus sets the standard for the engineering, manufacturing and repair of fluid film bearings and sealing solutions. Our product portfolio is expertly applied to improve efficiency and service life of rotating equipment across the oil & gas, power generation and industrial markets.

Fluid Film Bearings

Bearings Plus offers a complete line of hydrodynamic fluid film bearings. Journal and thrust bearings are available in fixed profile and tilt pad designs, including rocker back, ball and socket, and our optimum performance Flexure Pivot® tilt pad. In addition, our patented ISFD® technology – an integral squeeze film damper – is available to increase dynamic stability.

With a variety of proven designs, bearing sizes ranging from 7 mm (0.3″) to more than 910 mm (36″), and years of experience supplying critical applications, Bearings Plus can design and manufacture a bearing solution to your exact specifications.
