The implementation of sliding plate bearings provides an effective solution for accommodating the expansion of pipes while maintaining a separation from the supporting structure. By employing these innovative bearings, the desired relative movement between the pipe and the structure can be achieved.
At the heart of these slide-bearing plates lies a self-lubricating bronze plate embedded with graphite. This specialized configuration acts as a bearing pad, facilitating smooth mutual movement. It consists of a bronze bearing plate infused with graphite, complemented by an upper and lower slide plate assembly.
The operating principle revolves around the lower slide plate, which is typically welded to a fixed bracket, providing a secure grounding for the plate. On the other hand, the upper slide plate is directly attached to the moving part. As the system undergoes movement, the intersection of these two plates experiences transmitted friction.
Experience the benefits of these advanced slide-bearing plates, enabling seamless expansion and contraction of pipes while effectively managing friction. Trust in their reliability to ensure the smooth operation of your systems.
