Waukesha Bearings is preventing turbocharger failures and extending equipment life by bringing advanced products and engineering expertise to its partnerships with OEMs.
With a thorough analysis of a turbocharger’s rotordynamics, Waukesha Bearings journal bearing technologies can provide the necessary performance for long life with low vibrations.
MLSF® bearings and Flexure Pivot® tilt pad technology have successfully alleviated excessive temperatures and vibrations that could lead to complete turbocharger failure.
The multi-lobe semi-floating bearing dampens vibrations and maintains ideal operating temperatures. Flexure Pivot tilt pads can further improve stability in the space of a fixed profile design.
