Tilting pad journal bearings are designed for the most demanding turbomachinery applications, in terms of speed, load, and rotor dynamics. Due to the tilting capability of the individual pads, this 4- or 5-pad tilting pad journal bearing design does not tend to produce self-excited rotor vibrations and is suitable for high sliding speeds (e.g. 100 m/s and above). With an appropriate oil... Read more...
