Flooded Lubrication Thrust

Kingsbury tilting-pad flooded lubrication thrust bearing designs are the result of over 100 years of actual field application.

Kingsbury tilting-pad flooded lubrication bearings are the result of over 100 years of engineering, testing, and actual field application.

Flooded hydrodynamic bearings, which are typically split for assembly around a rotating shaft, float the machine's axial load on a self-renewing film of oil. The oil film provides shock absorption and helps to control vibration.

Kingsbury flooded tilting pad thrust bearings are used in many different applications including:

  • Generators
  • Turbines (steam, hydraulic, and gas)
  • Pumps (dredge, deep well, boiler feed and cooling types)
  • Compressors
  • Electric motors

EQH Thrust Bearings

The Kingsbury EQH equalizing thrust bearing is the product of many years of design refinement and application experience.

NE Thrust Bearings

Kingsbury's NE bearing, without our load equalizing feature, are well-suited for less demanding applications such as pumps or horizontal motors with lighter than average thrust loads.
