Directed Lubrication Journal

Rotating equipment is evolving and so are Kingsbury’s directed lubrication journal bearings.

Rotating equipment is evolving and so are Kingsbury's directed lubrication journal bearing products.

These bearings direct oil from an opening in the aligning ring to the leading edge of the shoe, and then onto the active surface of the bearing. With this method, just enough oil is applied to enable the bearing to run smoothly. The key benefits of directed lubrication technology are:

  • Reliable operation with lower oil flow requirements
  • Reduced power losses, particularly at higher speeds
  • Lower operating temperatures, especially at higher speeds
  • Significantly increased load capacity
