Bearing Design

Before choosing Thordon or Thor-Flex for an application, the following criteria must be considered:

  • speeds (rpm)
  • type of lubrication
  • pressures
  • amount of abrasives
  • degree of impact loading
  • ambient temperatures (maximum/minimum)
  • special ambient conditions (e.g. intermittent exposure to high temperature steam cleaning)
  • media temperature (pumps)
  • process temperature (pumps)
  • pH levels (pumps)
