The Leading White Metal (Babbitt) & PTFE Tilting Pad Hydro-dynamic Bearing Supplier in the World.
Michell Bearings is the Premier Designer and Manufacturer of self-contained white metal bearings (or Babbitt bearings) and PTFE faced tilting pad hydro-dynamic bearings for a wide range of Industrial Applications, including electrical machines, hydro generators, water turbines, pumps, gearboxes, fans, turbo compressors, gas and steam turbines.
1905 AGM Michell, an Engineer from Maldon Victoria, patented a type of bearing in which the load was carried upon hydrodynamic oil films generated by a series of pivoting whitemetal (or Babbitt) faced pads. The principle was applied to both thrust and journal bearings and is now universally known as the Michell Bearing.
Since then, including the revolutionary design and introduction of PTFE faced bearings, Michell Bearings has continued to be the world leader for industrial white metal and PTFE tilting pad thrust and journal bearings.
Michell Bearings also provides a complete bearing repair, overhaul and re-metalling service for thrust pads, journal pads and journal sleeves through ATI.
