Free Sliding Pot PTFE Bearing

Free Sliding Pot PTFE Bearing

A completely encased natural rubber or elastomer or neoprene pad is positioned in a monolithic steel pot. Under high pressure the pad behaves like a liquid. The elasticity of the rubber allows tilting movement (rotation) of the piston in horizontal axis.

Depending upon the type of bearing SIBB’s bearings are designed to accommodate vertical loads and corresponding horizontal forces, as well as movements in longitudinal or transversal directions.

This kind of bearings can carry very high loads, over 50kN. The standard range of SIBB’s is designed to have an horizontal load ≤ 25% of the maximum vertical load with a maximum rotation of ± 0.01 rad (other load and rotation combinations are provided on request).
