Developed for hydro-power applications, GGB Bearing Technology’s HPM and HPF fibre-reinforced, plastic composite bearings provide high load capacity, good shock and edge loading capacity, low friction, superior wear rate, corrosion resistance and dimensional stability. The bearings meet the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers’ specifications for self-lubricating bearings for wicket gate applications in hydro-power turbines, according to tests performed by Powertech Labs. In these tests, the bearings were subjected to accelerated wear testing under conditions simulating those encountered in hydropower turbines.
