Thordon bearing solutions have proven their value and performance in many industrial applications over the years.
Thordon Industrial plain journal bearings and wear pads have been successfully installed in a range of industries and applications including:
High resistance to abrasive wear • High impact resistance • Low coefficient of friction
Excellent self-lubricating qualities • Dry or wet operation in difficult environments • High edge loading capability
The modulus of resilience of elastomeric Thordon bearings is up to twenty times greater than bronze, as a result Thordon bearings will not “pound out” or split and will deflect slightly effectively spreading the load to accommodate edge loading conditions.
When performance improvements in plain journal bearings and wear pads are required, consider Thordon bearings.
