BPI manufactures pivot journal and thrust bearings. Journal types eliminate wear, high contact stresses and pad flutter problems. Thrust pivot bearings are used for a number of applications including electric motors, pumps, gear boxes, compressors, engines, turbines, turbochargers, oil well drilling motors, and marine shafts.
Lufkin offers tilting pad journal bearings with spherical pivots that provide high pivot stiffness values and low pivot stresses for minimal wear.
