Companies manufacture various kinds of self-lubricated, high performance slide bearings: support bearings, expansion plates, and other related products. They are designed to accommodate unidirectional and omni directional sliding movement in a single plane. They consist of a load-carrying pad in sliding contact with a fixed pad and are for use in buildings, bridges, chemical process equipment, and heavy industrial machinery, and are designed to support extremely heavy loads.
Made for high load, low coefficient of friction applications, slide bearings are needed when building heavy machines. They assure even load distribution of the heaviest weights. They exceed requirements for excellence, even under severe operating conditions–including power generation, bridge, mall, pollution control, chemical processing, and many other heavy construction industries. Their perfect alignment at vital support points in machinery makes them safe and preferable for use in all types of heavy construction equipment.
Typical applications of slide bearings are pipeline construction, steel and concrete buildings, bridges and highway construction, offshore drilling rigs, transmission towers, and various industrial uses such as wind tunnels, boilers, petrochemical plants, air heaters, and heat exchangers. With no lubrication or maintenance, they have an all-weather capability and indefinite life. Ease of installation is an added advantage .
