Conventional Power

Cooper split to the shaft bearings work hard throughout the conventional power industry, covering every area from combustion fossil fuels like coal, to bio-fuel burning – for example, straw, wood and organic waste – to nuclear power stations.

Key applications are:

  • Conveyors including belt, feeder and screw conveyors (which are particularly popular in the bio-fuel sector to transport organic fuel)
  • Fans and blowers
  • Crushers, breakers and pulverisers
  • Heat exchangers
  • Motors and generators
  • Water screens
  • Pumps and pump drives

We provide all the applicable pedestals (including SN, SAF and SD compatible housings), flanges, take-up and hanger units relied upon by the power industry.

The bearing that adapts to the conditions

The conventional power industry presents many challenges to both designers and machinery, with many harsh and extreme conditions to contend with and numerous trapped applications to negotiate. Cooper split to the shaft technology and superior sealing is the first choice for businesses wanting first class functionality plus the versatility split bearings provide, as they can be maintained and replaced without the need for major down-time.

The ideal seal…

Typically, felt, ATL, SRS seals are employed. SRS RP seals (with retaining plates) are particularly suitable for nuclear power station submerged applications.

….and bearing size

All four Cooper bearing series (100, 01, 02 and 03) play roles in the power industry, as do Cooper tapered bearings, and our wide range of special bearings.

Bespoke service

We are always happy to collaborate on bespoke projects. For example, we recently responded to a special arrangement on a pre-heater with a radial 01 series bearing combined with a flat thrust bearing.

If you are involved with the conventional power industry and would like to discuss how we can support your specific applications, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
