Pedestal bearing – HG type
RENK pedestal bearings in the HG range are self-lubricating slide bearings for high radial and axial load in conjunction with high speeds in a single direction of rotation, independent of the load direction. They were developed primarily for the mounting of hydro generators and electrical machines in stationary applications on land.
The key features of the HG bearings are the tiltable, round RENK RD slide shoes. These are supported via cup springs, thereby ensuring a uniform distribution of axial loads.
