CG-Series Hydrodynamic Bearings


CG Series Bearings: No Compromise


CG Series hydrodynamic bearings operate under load with an oil film fully separating all bearing surfaces. They share matching dimensions with water cooled bearings, for easy interchange, but eliminate all need for forced cooling. There is no compromise in load capacity, top speed or stability.

CG-1 Bearing
CG-1 Series

Fully housed, split, self-contained water and air cooling free bearing capable of accepting radial and axial loads, interchangeable with Dodge Sleevoil™ RTL bearings

CG-3 Bearing
CG-3 Series

Drop-in replacement liner for Dodge Sleevoil™ R-Series bearings (PL-WC and PL-XC) that eliminates the need for water and air cooling, while still using the existing Dodge brand housing.

CG-X Rebabbitted Bearing
CG-X Rebabbitting

For any babbitted bearing: improve wear by 185x, up to 2x greater operating temperature, eliminate water cooling, more start/stop cycles, protection from bearing wipe failure.

Oil Ring
Split Oil Rings

Split bronze trapezoidal oil rings for CG-series bearings, interchangeable with oil rings found on Dodge Sleevoil™ bearings

Thrust collar
Split Thrust Collars

Split high tensile and hardened thrust collars for CG-series bearings, interchangeable with collars found on Dodge Sleevoil™ bearings

Thrust collar
Split Thrust Plates

Split bronze thrust plates for CG-series bearings. Standard bumper thrust, medium and high capacity options.


Reliability and Savings

An average of 2.25 million gallons of water a year, per bearing, is saved by converting from a Dodge Sleevoil™ to a CG-series bearing. Traditional Sleevoil™ bearing failures caused by clogged or frozen water lines, failed supply pumps, leaks, and condensation are eliminated. Cooling lines, pumps, heat tracing, and insulation are no longer needed allowing maintenance hours to be reduced. The CG series bearing is 185x more wear resistant than conventional Babbitt lined bearings, allowing for more startup and shutdown cycles. HTB has 7 years of proven installs in demanding applications, such as FD, ID, PA and RA fans in all types of arrangements.

Support

HTB will assist in the evaluation of the fan or rotor for proper bearing and lubrication selection. For new installations the bearing bore and lubrication must be selected for the application to enhance operation. For experienced users HTB offers on-line access to the CG Series hydrodynamic bearing selection software.
