Vertical Bearings

Michell Bearings vertical bearings (AV, LV, V, and MV Series) have been designed and developed as fully self-contained, general purpose, modular assemblies to meet customer’s requirements.

For special applications and where the preference is for the bearing internals to be positioned within the casing of the machine, we can offer bespoke bearing solutions equivalent to our standard vertical ranges and beyond, including special self-contained bearing designs.

Product applications include:

• Pumps
• Motors
• Hydro turbines
• Hydro generators
