The Wärtsilä REsafe oil lubricated, white metal bearing option is manufactured internally and then centrifugally cast creating a high bond strength between the cast iron body and the tin based white metal inner surface. This type of bearing can be pressed fitted into housings or retained with resin bonding.
The stability and strength of this type of bearing allows operation at high pressures (up to 8barg) as well as providing better heat transfer through the white metal and shell. This bearing type has shown excellent performance and reliability in other energy sectors, and it is also the industry standard for oil lubricated installations in the marine market. Application/Options:
Typically oil lubricated shaft applications
Hydropower turbines, tidal turbines and pumps
Industrial applications include pumps in process industries, power generation, mining
Various rotating equipment applications
