Waukesha Bearings™ produces engineered fluid film (hydrodynamic) bearings, including thrust (axial) and journal (radial) types in vertical and horizontal assemblies. Their custom engineered bearings can increase the reliability and efficiency of gas, steam, and hydro turbines, compressors, gearboxes, motors and pumping systems. Tilting pad thrust types are used for high-load, high-speed applications, and are available in sizes from 1.25" to 60". Journal hydrodynamic designs are available in 1" to more than 20" diameters.
