Higher Load Capacity
Waukesha Bearings continues its leadership in advanced material bearings with the application of aluminum tin (AlSn).
A drop-in replacement for babbitt tilt pads, AlSn-lined tilt pads provide higher load capacity than babbitt pads due to higher temperature capability and greater fatigue resistance. AlSn pads can operate at up to 60% higher loads than babbitt pads.
The benefit of the higher load capacity can be applied to upgrade equipment capacity within the same bearing envelope or to reduce the bearing size for lower power loss and greater equipment efficiency.
