Long-lasting · Excellent resistance
Bearings are an important part of any engine and the marine diesel engines used on ships are no exception to this rule. Bearings help to reduce friction mainly by converting sliding friction into rolling friction.
To maintain quality control, the babbitting process is performed in-house. Tin-based babbitt is applied centrifugally to journal bearings and via static pour for thrust pads. The babbitt is metallurgically bonded to the bearing for maximum operating efficiency, and all materials meet or exceed the specification and standards established for shipboard use.
VIIPLUS Bearings performs non-destructive testing, including ultrasonic, liquid penetrant, and visual inspections, to ensure product integrity. In addition, solutions can be designed for shock loads.
