Journal Bearings - Overview

Royersford Journal Bearings are simple compact units designed for base loads and continuous operation at moderate speeds. They are available in solid and split styles with babbitt or bronze bearing materials. Special materials are also available for unusual applications.

Babbitt bearings are used with ambient temperatures up to 130° F. Bronze bearings should be used for higher or impact loads and up to ambient temperature of 300° F. Other materials are available for higher temperatures if required.

All bearings are broached or bored. Grease grooves provide lubrication and housings are tapped to receive grease cups or pressure style fittings. Ends are finished to provide bearing surfaces for sheaves or collars. Mounting holes are slotted for ease in alignment and adjustment during installation. All styles have these features with others to satisfy individual applications.
