W?rtsil? Thrust Bearings
Wärtsilä thrust bearing solutions are single collar, self-aligning thrust bearings. The bearings have two faces of tilting pads on pivots, and transmit thrust from the shaft to the bearing housing minimising the tilting effect, and reducing stress levels. The standard is for axial loads only, with an option for axial and radial loading.
The oil circulating and cooling system is available either as a self-lubricating system with integrated cooler or as an external pump and cooler unit. Fitted with complete remote monitoring of the temperatures and oil flow, the thrust bearing solution enables easy management of the product.
