These bearings provide a coefficient of friction less than 3% at a design pressure of 2500 psi (max.) with little variation at lesser pressures.
The bearings can be installed with a stitch weld 1/2 inch long 3 inch on center on all sides. The upper and lower units must be backed up with structural plates so that a uniform load is transmitted into the unit. Bending of the units is unacceptable.
