Externally-Pressurized Gas Tilting Pad (or sleeve) Bearings enable non-contact, oil-free operation. These externally pressurized air bearings employ the same mounts as current hydrodynamic oil-based bearings (not compliant foils or flexures), so that high stiffness and damping can be maintained with an easy path to retrofit. A variety of input gases in addition to air can be used – including process gas.Click Here for more information!
New Way’s porous media technology, when applied to rotating equipment, allows for replacing conventional seals with externally-pressurized gas seals. In some cases, a combination of bearing and sealing functionality can be achieved. New Way’s seals can be pressurized by external means, or by using process gas. Click Here for more information!
