Waukesha Bearings has partnered with US Synthetic, the leader in diamond solutions, to offer breakthrough performance in diamond tilt pad bearing technology.
Combining the benefits of Waukesha's tilt pad thrust bearing design with the superior wear resistance of US Synthetic’s polycrystalline diamond (PCD) technology, the diamond tilt pad thrust bearing provides superior bearing performance and extended life in equipment operating at high loads and speeds in low-viscosity lubricants, abrasive fluids or corrosive chemicals.
Diamond tilt pad thrust bearings:
PCD is not a diamond coating. It is a thick, manmade diamond surface ideally suited for operation in process fluids where abrasive particles can cause accelerated wear and failure with traditional bearing materials.
PCD is known for:
