Horizontal support slide bearings withstanding strong radial forces.

Maximizing your plant’s availability was our benchmark when developing the innovative RENK support bearings. Depending on the type, the bearing housings are available as pedestal, center flange (type SM) or saddle bearings. Operate them either with self-lubrication or with external lubricant supply. Some examples of our product lines:

  • Our SN, D- and L-Series bearings are the choice for conventional marine drives with shaft line and hydro turbines and generators
  • The SC line is designed as pedestal bearings and can support moderate axial forces in addition to high radial forces.
  • Our SM series are specially designed for use as engine bearings in marine applications or as generator bearings in hydro applications.

Our vertical thrust-and-guide bearings for all speed ranges.

The RENK VT/VG vertical slide bearings are your choice for slow-to medium-speed vertical machinery such as pumps, blowers, turbines or electric machines. VT bearings are supplied as combined thrust-and-guide bearings with radial and axial part; VG bearings as pure radial guide bearings. 

Our EVE/EVF series are specialized for fast running machines of vertical design, such as pumps, blowers, turbines or electric machines. The easy-to-fit bearing inserts have individually adjustable radial tilting pads.
