Press Release Summary:
Ride Tilting Pad Bearing and Polymer Runner combines hardened steel bearing with spring-mounted pads for load equalization and deflection to create converging wedge shape. Design combination permits bearing to run cool at loads up to 3,500 psi and withstand shock to 100 g. Available in sizes from 1-60 in. OD, Ride tilting pad fluid film bearing never wears out under normal operation and polymer runner operates at 482Â°F.
Original Press Release:
Hydrodynamic Bearing Features Polymer Coated Runner
A new, patented tilting pad style hydrodynamic bearing that features a polymer coated carbon steel runner for high shock- and high load applications with low viscosity fluids and frequent starting and stopping is being introduced by RIDE Technologies of West Greenwich, Rhode Island.
The Ride Tilting Pad Bearing and Polymer Runner combines a hardened steel bearing with spring-mounted pads for load equalization and deflection to create the converging wedge shape, and features a polymer coated steel runner. This design combination permits the bearing to run cooler at high loads up to 3,500 psi, can withstand shocks to 100 G's, and is ideal for low viscosity fluids and frequent start-and-stop applications.
Developed for submersible pumps, motors, compressors, and especially coal bed methane water pumping, the Ride tilting pad fluid film bearing never wears out under normal operation and the polymer runner operates at 482°F. Available in sizes from 1" to 60" O.D., the polymer runner eliminates hardened steel runners and dramatically cuts manufacturing costs, claims the firm.
The Ride Tilting Pad Bearing and Polymer Runner are priced according to configuration and quantity. Price quotations are available upon request.
