All our bearings can be customized to match your needs and requirements.
Pad load location
Load between pads orientation leads to the highest bearing load capacity. Load on pad orientation for lower bearing loads.
Miba offers line contact or spherical contact (e.g. ball & socket). A spherical contact allows pad tilting also in axial direction, to cope with misalignment and thereby avoid edge contact.
Oil inlet nozzles control the flow. Direct lubrication reduces power loss and the improved oil flow leads to lower pad temperatures. Direct lubrication can be combined with a pad oil distribution feature at the pad inlet. Open end plate design (non-sealing) can be provided for cavity evacuation.
For start-up loads above 1,5 – 2,0 MPa or continuous slow-roll / turning gear operation, to ensure product safety.
Eddy Groove is a bearing pad design feature for higher performance that disturbs the laminar lubricant flow and creates a cooling effect by mixing cooler oil near the shaft with warmer oil near the bearing surface.
To isolate electrical current to protect the rotor and bearing.
Miba Industrial Bearings offers a wide range of instrumentation, including various sensor dimensions (cable length, sensor diameter), different types of thermocouples and more.
