Bearing Shells

For decades hydrodynamic Main-Metall® bearing shells have been used successfully in heavy duty applications like cement kiln roller stations.

  • Load up to 5 MPa
  • Sliding speed up to 40 m/s
  • Shaft diameter up to 1100 mm (larger if segmented)
  • Temperature up to 120°C
  • Excellent sliding and emergency operating properties
  • Compensation of shaft misalignments
  • Substantially more cost effective than copper alloys
