MLSF® Bearings

Waukesha Bearings provides uniquely engineered multi-lobe semi-floating bearings that improve stability and ensure long life and maximum reliability compared to conventional floating ring bearings.

Using proven technology, MLSF bearings are designed to run at optimum temperatures with minimal vibrations, extending the life of the equipment and surrounding parts.

Long Life

  • Minimized vibrations promoting longer-lasting equipment

  • Lessened likelihood of early failure in the turbocharger and downstream equipment

Low Maintenance and Minimal Downtime

  • Bearings in operation exceed 30,000 hours each and counting
  • Surpass competitors’ bearings in the same application lasting only 500 hours on multiple units
  • Bearing system is designed to operate at an optimized temperature with minimal vibrations, extending the life of the equipment and surrounding parts.

Reduced Overall System Emissions

  • Optimized bearing design improves the overall system efficiency

Waukesha Bearings continually works toward optimized bearing designs to solve challenging applications and engineer proven results. Whether an application requires reduced temperature, minimal power loss, elimination of coking or maximized efficiency, we provide proven results.
