BHS tilting pad bearings, journal bearings,thrust pad bearings,slide bearings are use our  original features to ensure optimum load distribution and trouble free operation, and also take advantage of other features such as offset pivots to achieve the best possible performance. Key features make the tilting pad journal bearing superior to other directed lubrication bearings in use today:

1.Oil feed tubes connecting to the shoes ensures that cool oil does not bypass the film.

2.The improved feature is an integral part of the shoes.

3.Large oil flow passages eliminate small-hole clogging.

4.No oil seal rings are required, lowering power loss and simplifying design and installation.

5.Our tilting pad thrust bearing does not require (but can use) special, higher pressure lube systems typically needed for spray lubrication.

These optimum design and key features are standard on the journal bearing which contribute to the performance advantages.The BHS bearing's advantages extend beyond performance improvements. Since most of all the fresh oil flows into the oil wedge, the significant reduction in flow and power loss allows use of smaller lubrication oil systems, cutting capital costs.

BHS tilting pad bearings are perfect for retrofit applications and can be used to economically increase bearing performance in existing installations. Retrofitting BHS bearings is the perfect solution if field experience has proven a bearing installation to be marginal or if upgrades or changes in operating conditions have caused an increase in load. Our tilting pad bearings can be installed quickly, without modifications to the bearing housing or shaft.Lubricating oil enters and exits the bearings.Titlting pad thrust bearing in the same manner as a standard bearing so no alterations need be made to the oil delivery system. Merely replacing standard bearings with the bearing retrofits will immediately provide flow, power loss and shoe temperature advantages. Furthermore, with minor modifications to existing housing parts and flow paths, optimum benefits can

be obtained. For new applications as well as for retrofits,

Tilting pad thrust and journal bearings provide the following benefits:

  1. Lower friction power loss for increasedoverall machine efficiency.

2.Lower operating temperature and increased load capacity.

  1. Lower oil flow requirements for smallerlubricating oil systems and lower capital costs.

4.Ability to optimize for maximum load capacity or to minimize power loss.
