Find out more about Trelleborg‘s bearing solutions for hydroelectric dams.
Bearings are a key component for the efficient operation of a hydroelectric dam. The turbines rely on multiple types of bearings to ensure reliable long-life performance, whether lubricated or dry-running
As the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of self-lubricating hydropower bearings, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has developed two proprietary materials that are specially formulated for use within hydroelectric dams - Orkot® TLMM and Orkot® TXMM.
These materials incorporate a woven fabric reinforcement and solid lubricants into a thermosetting resin matrix to provide optimum performance. They reduce friction, display excellent wear characteristics and are non-toxic.
