CG-3 Hydrodynamic Bearings

CG3 Core

A direct drop-in replacement for the Dodge R-Series Sleevoilâ„¢ PL-WC or PL-XC bearing liner that installs directly into an existing Dodge R-series Sleevoilâ„¢ bearing housing and eliminates the need for water or air cooling.

A proven record of conversion

CG-3 bearings are installed in critical applications with some of the largest manufacturing and power plant facilities in the United States. Users save thousands of dollars per year, per bearing, in operating cost, versus traditional water cooled bearings. On average each CG-3 bearing installed saves 1.7 million gallons of pumped water per year, eliminating a large portion of the plant water or air distribution system including water or air lines, insulation, pumps, treatment chemicals and required maintenance.

CG-3 Construction

Made from domestic ductile iron, machined and inspected using both automated inspection technology and manual checks. The bearing is manufactured to quickly install into an existing dodge R-series housing and eliminate all need for forced cooling. CG-3 series split thrust collars, oil rings and housing cover plates will interchange with Dodge R-series Sleevoilâ„¢ hardware.

Made in America

High Temp Bearings Inc. hydrodynamic bearings are manufactured in the United States.

CG-3 Selection

Prior to conversion, during normal operation the shaft temperature must be measured, by IR gun, exiting the fan housing. If a shaft neck down is present or a cooling disk, temperature must be taken at the shaft portion that is at the bearing bore diameter farthest from the bearing face. The approximate distance must be documented. If measurements are taken too close to a water or air cooled bearing, temperatures readings will be lower.

If an existing Dodge PL-XC or WC bearing liner has any special features such as a liner undercut, non-standard bore, special thrust plates, or integral shaft collars machined into the shaft, this must be communicated so that we may properly construct the bearing.

For a complete technical bearing selection, evaluation is best done by direct inquiry to High Temp Bearings. We will assist with identifying the information necessary and provide a full complementary analysis.
