Design Solutions for Specific Applications

From material selection through geometry and stress analysis, Canadian Babbitt Bearing's Engineered Bearing technology and practical experience provide reliable solutions for:

  • Fixed & tilting pad geometries 

  • Journal, thrust and conical 

  • Incompressible fluid (oils, hydraulic fluids, water, etc.) 

  • Hydrodynamic, hydrostatic or hybrid 

  • Full-film, mixed-film or boundary lubrication 

  • Structural analysis for housing and casing

  • Oil lift system

  • Sealing selection and design

 

We use our fluid film software to determine bearing parameters such as: 

  • Minimum fluid film thickness

  • Heat analysis and temperature rise

  • Lubricant flow rate 

  • Dynamic characteristics (Damping and Stiffness) and their effects on rotor vibration
