Coleherne supply and refurbish White Metal Bearings for applications in steam, gas and hydro-power plants such as turbines, generators, pumps, motors and gear boxes. Kingsbury’s LEG direct lubrication bearings are preferred for new steam or gas turbines due to their low power loss and high load capacity while their equalising bearings are the industry standard for hydro turbine applications.
Coleherne’s flooded journal bearings are widely used for standard pumps, high speed compressors and high load gearboxes. However, for even higher speed, higher load gearboxes the ideal solution may be Kingsbury’s LEG (Leading Edge Groove) thrust and journal bearings or BPG (Between Pad Groove) journal bearings.
Coleherne supplies White Metal bearings for large industrial gear boxes and compressors with cylindrical, elliptical and offset bore configurations. We also supply oil ring lubricated White Metal bearings for electric motors, pumps and fans.
