Complete Bearing Solution
Depending on size and orientation, generators use the full range of Waukesha Bearings products as internal bearings or complete assemblies with a housing.
Power generators tend to use the conventional material combination of babbitt (aka whitemetal) and steel backing. Polymer bearing surfaces can provide electrical insulation to prevent damaging stray currents from passing through the bearing. Hydrostatic jacking for start-up and run-down is common on larger machines.
