WABODEC P - Pot bearings
How does WABODEC P work?
WABODEC P bearings consist of a steel baseplate housing a ring into which a rubber disc is fitted. The former ring is closed above a steel pressure plate engaging with a slight clearance into the circular baseplate recess. Rubber is retained in all directions and, behaving as an incompressible liquid, affords rotations on all axes.
Where is WABODEC P applied?
WABODEC P steel/PTFE bearings, of the elastomer-based retained disc type are used as structural bearings for bridges since they are designed to support large vertical loads whilst on occasions resist horizontal loading and accomodate movement in a variety of directions.
What are the advantages of WABODEC P?
- High resistance to horizontal stress
- High resistance to dynamic loads
- High durability
- Reduced maintenance
