Thin Wall Bearings

Thin Wall bearings, also known as “Plain Bearings” or “Sleeve Bearings”, are designed for use in numerous applications and offer features and benefits unavailable with many rolling-element bearings. Thin Wall bearings are distinguished from rolling-element bearings primarily by the fact that they consist of only one part. However, that singular part may be built from different materials, and layered and combined into a load carrying system.

Selecting the right thin wall bearing for each project requires detailed knowledge of the application requirements and experience with bearing technology. Quad Industries Inc. bearing experts are available to help with advice and guidance to make the selection process as easy as possible.

Thin Wall bearings are generally found in Compressors, Pumps, Turbines, used for main bearings and connecting rod bearings.

Below are examples of Thin Wall bearings, which range up to .187 wall thickness. All bearings are made from Babbit metal. Please see chart for a large range of bearing diameters, which Quad has the ability to manufacture.
