Thrust Collar Bushing
Heavy equipment success and failure sometimes comes down to the ability to withstand loads repeatedly. Boost load-bearing resilience with thrust collars from U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine.
What’s a thrust collar?
Thrust collars are incorporated into applications such as pipelines or compressors to absorb loads. They are an efficient way to resist thrust loads caused by internal pressure or balance thrust loads created by compressors or expander stages.
Issues like misalignment, friction, stress, overloading, and age can cause excessive wear. This degrades performance over time. Avoid unwanted downtime by obtaining high-grade thrust collars from U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine.
