Engineering news website Industry Tap recently published an article on GGB Bearing Technology’s HPMB® fiber-reinforced composite bushings, which have been approved by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for hydropower water turbines:   http://www.industrytap.com/hpmb-bearings-approved-u-s-army-corps-engineers-hydropower-water-turbines/42880.

Titled “HPMB® Bearings Approved by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for Hydropower Water Turbines,” the article describes the high strength and impact resistance, corrosion resistance and negligible water absorption of GGB’s HPMB® bushings. Additionally, their class-leading tribological properties and outstanding dimensional control make them perfect for hydropower water turbine and industrial applications. They feature a fully machinable liner, enabling a precise fit that is unattainable by other technologies.

The article continues by highlighting how HPMB® bushings self-lubricating properties make them ideal for aqueous and dry environments. The propensity of HPMB® high precision bearings to withstand heavy loads, slow speeds and provide precise tolerances allow them to replace traditional greased bronze bearings for industrial applications.

GGB offers extensive experience and technical expertise, working closely with customers to develop custom bushing solutions. For more information, please contact marketing@ggbearings.com.
