Plain Bearings Move Heavyweight Radial Gates
When building a new dam in Vietnam near the city of Quang Ngãi the water was regulated via 19 radial gates. These moveable assemblies require high-performance and durable bearing designs. Therefore, the choice was made for maintenance-free spherical plain bearings with ELGOGLIDE from Schaeffler. These spherical plain bearings need neither initial nor relubrication and can withstand high loads.
