Combination Bearings (Thrust and Journal)

The combination bearings (thrust and journal bearing in one housing) are designed for the most demanding turbomachinery applications, in terms of speed, load and rotor dynamics. The combined bearing saves space and due to the tilting capability of the individual pads in both radial and axial direction, it is suitable for sliding speeds up to 100 m/s (engli units) and above. With appropriate oil supply, bearing loads of > 3 MPa (engli units) are achievable for continuous operation.
