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 base ring, to the leading edge of the shoes, and onto the moving surfaces of the bearing. With this method, just enough oil is applied to enable the bearing run smoothly. The key benefits of directed lubrication technology are:
  • Reliable operation with lower oil flow requirements
  • Dramatically reduced bearing power losses
  • Much lower operating temperatures
  • Significantly increased load capacity
