Bearing Internals

Michell Bearings offers several standard ranges of bearing internals for both thrust (Omega, Omega Equalised and Self Equalising) and Radial Journal Pad Unit (JPU) applications. We can also offer bespoke bearing internals to suit individual project requirements, with either whitemetal or PTFE lined thrust and journal bearing components.

Product applications include:

• Gearboxes
• Steam turbines
• Gas turbines
• Horizontal pumps
• Turbo compressors
• Hydro generators

SE Series

The Michell Self Equalised (SE) Series is a range of equalised thrust bearing internals. The provision of interacting equalising levers behind the thrust pads allows thrust loads to be mechanically equalised across the complete thrust face.

JPU

The Michell range of Journal Pad Units (JPU) covers a shaft diameter range from 40-300mm.

Omega Equalised

The Michell Omega Equalised Series is a range of equalised thrust bearing internals.

Omega

The philosophy of the Omega series involves offering various thrust pad sizes in different combinations to allow the most appropriate thrust bearing to be selected for the application.
