Thrust bearing solutions transmit the thrust from the shaft to the bearing housing which minimizes the tilting effect with the benefit of low stress levels.
Wärtsilä thrust bearings are single collar, self-aligning thrust bearings. They are designed with two faces of tilting pads on pivots. The standard is for axial loads only and there is an option for axial and radial loading.
The oil circulating and cooling system is available either as a self-lubricated system with integrated cooler or as external pump and cooler unit.
Fitted with complete remote monitoring of the temperature and oil flow, the thrust veering solutions enables easy management of the product.
