Miba Industrial Bearings

Eddy Groove Technology

In high performance turbomachinery, the maximum bearing temperatures can be a crucial parameter. To increase the operational safety and performance, Miba developed the patent pending eddy groove technology. Miba eddy groove bearings develop significantly lower maximum oil film and bearing metal temperatures, especially at medium to high loads and sliding spe... Read more...

Operating Principle

In a fluid film bearing, the stationary and rotating surfaces are separated by a thin film of lubricant, such as oil, air, water or process fluid. In a hydrodynamic fluid film bearing, the film pressure that separates the surfaces is created by the relative motion (rotation) of the surfaces as the lubricant is pulled into a converging geometry between the surfa...
