Bridge bearings play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and longevity of bridges, yet they are often overlooked and taken for granted as they are hidden from view. Without them, bridges would be vulnerable to significant damage and eventual failure

Bridge Bearings

The primary purpose of bridge bearings is to provide flexibility and support to bridges, allowing them to adjust to various external factors such as temperature changes, traffic loads, and seismic activity. They transfer the load from the superstructure (deck) to the substructure or piers, while also allowing for the movement and rotation of the bridge deck.

Aspects of Bridge Bearing Maintenance

To ensure longevity and performance, bridge bearings need regular maintenance. The key steps involved in maintaining bridge bearings include: Technical survey for bridge bearings. Monitoring: Bearing performance should be monitored regularly to detect changes or problems. This can be done using various methods, such as measuring displacement or strain, or observing any unusual movements or vibrations. Cleaning: Bearing pads should be cleaned to remove any dirt, debris, or other contaminants that may cause damage or reduce their effectiveness.

Replacement:

Over time, bridge bearing pads may wear out or become damaged, and they will therefore need to be replaced. Reasons for this include: Leaking bridge deck joints – allowing corrosive water and debris to reach the bearings

• Inadequate visibility that prevents inspection

• Extreme environmental conditions caused by cold, wet, or industrial pollution

• Improper bearing specification and orientation

• Inadequate multi-directional movement • Bearing defects caused in production • Wear and fatigue due to overload

We are having lifting jacks at various capacities & height (From 100 ton to 300 ton) Jacks are specially designed with provision at locking. Additional equipments like manifolds, Hose pipes, rings, powerpack, packing material, measurement devices are well maintainedd & tested.
