Tilting Pad Thrust Bearings

Tilting pad thrust bearings are designed for the most demanding turbomachinery applications. Due to the tilting capability of the individual pads, thrust bearings allow high sliding speeds ( e.g. 160 m/s and above). With an appropriate oil supply, bearing loads of >4 MPa are achievable for continuous operation.
