ACM Hydropower L15
ACM Hydropower has been developing, manufacturing and supplying highly engineered composite bearings to the Hydropower Industry for many years and L7 materials offer significant increase in performance without the need for periodic lubrication and maintenance.
Both the L7 and L15 are self lubricating materials that have been specially developed to meet the demands of applications requiring high load capability, low wear, low friction and long life.
ACM Hydropower Industry materials have proven to offer superior wear performance from abrasive water conditions when compared to rubber and other non-metallic bearings.
For the repair of turbine main shaft bearings our materials can be supplied in one piece and freeze fitted into the existing housing thus reducing downtime costs. For new build we can supply the bearing as a fully machined stand alone item or as a complete bearing/housing package ready for installation.
As a world class supplier ACM offers a professional service with technical support from their experienced team of plastic technologists/application engineers including, design recommendation, technical proposals and quotation, machining recommendations and bearing installation assistance.
