The generator bearings can be tested in a testing workbench especially designed and built for these bearings, allowing testing of any type and size of bearing under any speed and load conditions.
The Wärtsilä G-bearings are self-aligning with cast-iron housings, and centrifugally cast tin-based white metal bearing surfaces. They can all be fitted with systems to remotely monitor temperature and oil flow. Depending on the intended installation, the bearings can be altered to support both axial and radial loads.
All bearing designs offer a variety of lubrication and cooling options to ensure they are appropriately prepared for the intended application. The range includes generator bearings which are designed according to a. DIN 31690 (which is adapted for fixing to a platform), b. DIN 31693 (which has a laterally positioned flange) and c. DIN 31694 (which has a flange in the middle of the bearing).
