With over 35 years of vertical pump bearings manufacturing experience. We manufacture pump cutlass bearings in all sizes and types for leading OEM’s, repair centres and distributors. GMP bearings are custom made to our client’s requirements to accommodate any size, materials and volume.
GMP Industrial water lubricated bearings are used for Vertical turbine pumps including axial flow and diagonal flow – Circulating water pump, auxiliary refrigerating seawater pump installed in nuclear power plants, thermal power plants, desalination plants and lift irrigation projects, city/town municipal water projects and waste water treatment plants.
Specialty Rubber Compounds
GMP engineers can develop industrial rubber compounds that are specially engineered to meet the performance requirements for your applications.
Industry leading rubber to metal shell bond and rubber to composite shell bonding techniques developed by GMP ensure fails safe bonding of rubber-to-metal and rubber-to-composite. GMP bearings have industry leading bond strength of 235 PSI (16.5 Kg/sq. cm)
GMP Industrial water lubricated bearings are custom machined to meet exact specifications of our clients for clearance and tolerance.
GMP rubber bearings have very low coefficient of friction, when compared with any other bearings. The low coefficient of GMP bearings help in reducing friction and thus cut energy losses.
Protect shaft and Sleeve
he inner groove design of GMP bearings combined with proprietary rubber compound creates a hydrodynamic lubricating film even at low shaft rpm. The grooves are designed for maximum lubricating water flow and dissipation of frictional heat. Abrasive grit is flushed out through these grooves, protecting the shaft/sleeve as well as the bearings from damage.
GMP proprietary rubber compound is more durable against friction when compared with other rigid bearings. Furthermore, GMP rubber bearings have higher ability to suppress vibrations from the shaft, thus running silently.
|CONCENTRICITY AND CYLINDRICITY|
Most manufacturers use centreless grinding techniques to finish the outside diameter but centreless grinding process does not take the inside diameter of the bearing into account, the centres of the outside diameter and inside diameter may not be the same.
|Density (Specific gravity)||1.25 ± 0.1|
|Hardness Shore A||65/75 shores A|
|Tensile strength||(Min) 170 kgf/cm2|
|Young modules||(Max) 220kg/cm2|

|Bond strength (rubber lining to shell)||235 PSI (16.5 Kg/sq. cm)|
GMP Split Cutlass Bearings are designed for easy fitment and extraction; bearing shell material can be metal (brass, bronze, stainless steel) or nonmetal sleeve that is precision machined with keystone or dovetail races for easy fitment. Longitudinal water grooves run the full length of the shell to provide optimum water flushing and lubrication.
GMP Industrial Bearings are available in a variety of types:
Cylindrical or Flanged Sleeve
Rubber lining is Fluted or Spiral
Fluted in Circular or Polygonal Profile
Our in-house manufacturing capabilities enable us to produce pump bearings from a wide range of materials.
