    Oil-to-Water Bearing Conversion Complete for Jaldhaka Stage-1 Turbine

    Jan 16, 2019
    Thordon Bearings’ Global Service & Support division completed the bearing conversion of the 10MW Francis turbine in June 2018 together with Andritz Hydro, after the existing white metal bearing was damaged due to water ingress from a faulty shaft seal. Through its regional distributor in India, Soneji Engineering, Thordon supplied a complete guide bearing package for the turbine’s 355mm (14in) diameter shaft. The scope of supply included an SXL guide bearing with tapered key set in a split stainless-steel housing, a SXL segmented radial shaft seal with split housing, a Thordon Water Quality Package (WQP) to deliver clean lubricating water to the bearing, and a comprehensive instrumentation package for monitoring bearing condition.
