Customized design
All our bearings can be customized to your needs and requirements

Self-equalizing system for thrust parts
For handling misalignments between the thrust collar and the bearing, a self-equalizing system is available. As a result, overloads are reduced and a significantly improved thrust force distribution is achieved.

Pad load location
Load between journal pads orientation leads to the highest bearing load capacity or load on pad orientation can be chosen for lower bearing loads.

Pivot Design
Miba offers line contact or spherical contact (e.g. ball & socket). Spherical contact allows pad tilting also in axial direction, to cope with misalignment and thereby avoid edge contact.

Direct or flooded lubrication can be chosen. Direct lubrication reduces power loss and the improved oil flow leads to lower pad temperatures. The direct lubrication can be combined with leading edge distribution for better performance.

Hydrostatic jacking
For start-up loads above 1,5 – 2 MPa or continuous slow-roll / turning gear operation, to ensure product safety.

Eddy Grooves
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.

Miba Industrial Bearings offers a wide range of instrumentation, including various sensor dimensions (cable length, sensor diameter), different types of thermocouples, etc.

Miba Production Control
Tight tolerances of the bearing diameters supporting machine reliability and time saving maintenance.
