JPU

The Michell range of Journal Pad Units (JPU) covers a shaft diameter range from 40-300mm. There are 5 tilting radial pads per set which can be arranged so that load is applied directly to one pad or shared between two pads. Each pad is manufactured to give a preload profile at the working face to ensure that a converging, pressure generating hydrodynamic oil wedge is always formed between the radial pads and the shaft.
Bespoke designs are available for any requirements that fall outside of the standard range.
