Hydro Bearing → Guide Vane Sleeve → PLAT (Dx Type)

INDRON® bearings with metal-based coating are an ideal alternative to oil – lubricated metal bearings for guide vanes, whose creative coating design has overcome the restriction of dry – ice installation for polymer bearings and eliminated the obvious clearance changes caused by the water swelling of polymer and thermal expansion.

 

  • Best fit clearances are maintained thanks to tiny water swelling and dimensional changes.
  • Maximum load capacity (25% strain) up to 100Mpa.
  • Effective protection of the shaft neck and reliable performances due to full coverage of the shaft neck.
  • Avoids the inconvenience that a typical polymer bearing has to be refrigerated by dry ice during installation.
