We are one of the renowned POT Bearing Manufacturers and POT Bearing Suppliers– including fixed pot bearings, sliding guided pot bearings and free sliding pot bearings for the very first time in South India. Pot Bearing designed by us are based on calculation of IRC: 83 (Part III)-2002.
The basic elements of Pot Bearings is shallow cylinder known as pot, an elastomeric pad known as disc,and a single or set of sealing rings, piston and sliding surfaces. Masonry plates and base plates are common for installation of pot bearings, as they allow attachment of bearings which increase the support area on the pier and abutment. Pot bearings are fixed against all the translation unless they are used with a PTFE sliding surfaces.
Pot and Piston
The pot bearings are always manufactured using Structural Carbon steel and pistons from Stainless Steels. The sealing rings are brass rings which being the most crucial component of pot bearings for its long term services which are proprietary system followed by us.
In Pot bearings vertical load was carried through piston of pot bearings and is resisted by compressive stress in elastomeric pad. The pad is deformable but almost in compressible and is often idealized as be having hydro statically but in practical exerts shear stiffness.
External Protective Rubber Dust Seals
We offer proprietary external dust proof protective seals on all of our pot bearings, resisting entry of debris like dirt, water, etc which can damage elastomeric pad and brass sealing rings, providing substantial benefits.
Types of Pot Bearings manufactured by us
* Fixed pot bearings.
* Guided Sliding pot bearings.
* Free Sliding pot bearings.
Advantages of Pot bearings
* Pot bearings are usually recommended when bearing rotations are large, compact designs and long term serviceability are required.
* Pot bearings provides longer service life compared to elastomeric bearings.
* Smaller in size compared to elastomeric bearings.
* Longer maintenance time.
* Pot bearings can sustain many cycles of very small and large rotations.
* Economical repair as replacement of elastomer disc only.
* Does not get effected by external atmospheric correction.
Additional fixtures for Pot Bearings.
We also offer additional fixtures for installation of pot bearings like temporary bearings, ptfe sliding bearings, studs, base plates, masonry plates with welded studs etc and will be happy to receive your complete requirements.
