Thrust bearings for marine propulsion, when not enclosed in
the machinery housing, are usually installed in pedestal-type mount
ings, provided by the bearing manufacturer, which are bolted directly
to the ship's structure. Dredge pumps, likewise, usually have a
pedestal-type thrust-and-joural bearing and an inboard journal
bearing, mounted on the pump bedplate.
This catalog has been prepared to supply to the prospective
user the data concerning thrust and joural bearings of this type,
that will enable him to estimate closely the size and style of bearing
required and to choose the unit most likely to fll his needs. It should
be understood, however, that though we desire, by means of this
booklet, to help establish a satisfactory preliminary design, it is
nonetheless important that we be consulted and enabled to check
the application before fnal plans and commi tmen ts are made. In
addi tion, because of the possi bili ty of minor changes, or special cir
cumstances, the fgures in the several dimension lists should be
confrmed before basing space allocations on their use.
Explanation of the basic Kingsbury principle of wedge-shaped
oil flms, automatically self-renewed and preventing metallic contact
and wear, will be found in other literature obtainable upon request.

This catalog covers bearings of types FF and
FTF and L, LD, and LG. These, with the excep
tion of types L and LD, which are journal
bearings, are thrust-and-journal bearings in
which the thrust bearing is of the equalizing
six-shoe type. There are available also two-shoe
adjustable bearings which can be used for the
same kinds of application under favorable oper
ating conditions. These are not treated in this
booklet but information regarding them will be
furnished upon request.
The type L and LD journal bearings, being
frequently used in conjunction with the thrust
bearings named above, are described herein.
Their descriptions will also be found in other
literature because of their broad applicability.

The basic elements of all Kingsbury Bearings
are:
(1) The stationary pivoted Shoes.
(2) The Thrust Collar which rotates with the
shaft and applies the load to the shoes.
,3) The Base Ring including means of equaliz
ing the shoe loads.
(4) The Housing or mounting, which contains
and supports the internal bearing elements.
Figure

,5) The Lubricating ,ystem which continuously
floods the collar and shoes wi th oil.
(6) The Cooling System for removing the heat
generated by the shearing of the oil flm.
Every thrust bearing installation involves all
these elemen ts in one form or another. This cata
log LH is, however, concerned only with the
standard "equalizing" elements having six shoes
and mounted in pedestal-type housings provided
by the bearing manufacturer.

Styles FF and FTF aford the maXImum
thrust capacity for a given shaft size and collar
diameter. They con tain six bearing shoes of the
form shown in Figure 4, page 7. The loads are
equalized among the shoes by forged steel rock
ing levers or "leveling plates;" hence the thrust
bearings in these mountings are known as "self
aligning and equalizing."
For ready assembly when the shaft is in
place, the base rings are spli t as shown in Figure
6, and are inserted by frst putting the bottom
half of each ring over the shaft, then rotating
it in to place.
Sometimes the reverse thrust is much less
than the principal or forward thrust. The two
shoe bearing element shown in Figure l3 may
then be used in place of one of the six-shoe
bearings. I t has one-third the capacity of the
latter. I t may be used also to limit end play

where the operating thrust is always in one
direction. This two-shoe element is adjustable,
but not self-equalizing.
The journal bearings in these thrust elements
are fxed. Style FF mounting has one journal
bearing; Style FTF mounting, with two journal
bearings, has greater radial load capacity. This
bearing arrangement is only required for special
applications where conditions are such as to
warran t its use.
Four shaft sizes are standard for each size of
housing; the thrust capacity is somewhat less
for the larger sizes in each housing.

I t is assumed that Styles FF and FTF will
be connected to a nearby circulating system
supplying cooled oil.
Automatic lubrication could be provided for
these mountings but, if that is desired, Style
LG, which is designed to be self-oiling, should
preferably be chosen instead.
The end closures are usually of simple design
as in Figure 9, but when otherwise ordered
may be of various forms suitable to the
conditions.
Special housings can be furnished if necessary
to fit the customer's construction.
Style LG Bearings
(Six Shoes)
Style LG mounting contains a self-aligning
journal bearing, together with an equalizing
thrust bearing designed primarily for dredge
pump service, and is built in sizes from 12 to
33 inches diameter of thrust collar. The thrust
elemen ts on one side of the thrust collar are
of the six-shoe type used in Styles FF and
FTF, including leveling plates and split base
rings; on the other side two shoes are usually
mounted.
The journal bearing, instead of being fxed
as in all the styles previously described, is self
aligning. This feature allows the bearing to align

lator on thrust collar, by

itself automatically with the shaft; and this is
useful in case of unavoidable springing of a
foundation. As the thrust shoes on the loaded
side are self-aligning, they too can be considered
protected against condi tions of misalignmen t.
For dredge pump service a six-shoe thrust
bearing is used on the load-carrying side, in con
nection with a two-shoe adjustable bearing on
the side away from the main thrust, to limit end
play. The loaded side must be clearly indicated
in the order. Where the thrust load may be equal
in either direction, the bearing elements should
be alike on both sides of the thrust collar.

Style LD Line Shaft Bearing. This bearing is
discoiled and self#aligning.
Style L Journal Bearings
For use on heavy-duty hydraulic dredges we
furnish the self-aligning joural bearing shown
in Figure l. I t has a removable shell, with full
bearing area in each half arranged to receive a
continual stream of oil under some pressure,
feeding the oil films. Because of these features
it carries successfully the whirling loads fre
quently set up in dredge pumps (as by a rock
passing through the im peller) .
Oil is pumped to the bearing from the Kings
bury self-lubricating thrust bearing, Style LG
(six shoes, with oil circulator) . Or oil may be
delivered by a separate oil pump.
A suitable orifice should be installed in the
oil supply pipe, to control oil fow.
Dimensions are given on page 22. Shaft sizes
there listed are standard, but others can be
accommodated when circumstances so require.

Style LD Line Shaft Bearings
11
Style LD Line Shaft Bearings are
self-aligning and self-lubricating. Oil
is picked up from the bath by a disc
spring-clamped on the shaft, and is
carried to a bronze wiper at the top.
The wiper, bearing against one face
of the disc, scrapes of oil and deliv
ers it in a stream to a pocket in the
top of the bearing shell. From the
pocket oil runs down to feed the oil
film. The shell has full bearing area
in the lower half, and babbitted end
strips in the upper half.
The usual end closures are felt
rings as indicated in the illustrations.
Dimensions are given on page 21.
Shaft sizes there listed are standard,
but others can be accommodated by
making the elements with special
size bores.

Lubrication
Although the Kingsbury principle involves
continual self-renewal of the oil flms between
shoes and collar, the thickness of those flms
(and hence the safety of the bearing) depends
on the operating conditions. These conditions
include load per square inch of shoe area (which
can be greater with large shoes than with small
ones) , and viscosity of the oil at running tem
perature. Temperature depends on speed and
on the cooling means.
Though the heating due to oil shear is small,
it is a defnite quantity which may be calculated.
The cooling agent may be passed through an
attached external cooler. Or the bearing may
be tied into a general lubricating system with
central cooling.
The "in ternal" resistance to fow of oil through
the bearing assembly itself is slight. The piping
and the oil passages in the bearing are designed
to carry the required fow easily.
Three to fve pounds per square inch oil pres
sure at the inlet is usually sufcient.
With oil cooling, the fow must be sufcient
to carry of the heat generated by oil shear be
tween shoes and collar. The operating instruc
tions usually specify the viscosity and oil fow
recommended.
Cooling Requirements
The type FF and FTF bearings are usually
arranged for forced lubrication from an external
supply. Type LG bearings are ftted with a
circulator for automatic lubrication, and an
external cooler moun ted on the housing.
In either case, since it is difcult to lay down
general rules on this subject, we should be con
sul ted in regard to the amoun t of cooling req uired
for each specifc application.
The circulator is a simple form of built-in
"viscosity pump," operating on the periphery of
12
the thrust collar. This viscosity pump is entirely
self-contained, automatic, and extremely simple,
and it requires no attention. It develops enough
pressure to circulate the oil through an external
cooler located near the bearing moun ting.
The thrust bearing may be located at the
end of a shaft, using a separate thrust collar
secured to the shaft by a nut. If the shaft does
not extend through, the end of the housing
may be closed by a cap. In such cases the
thrust collar is furnished as one of the thrust
elements.
Four, or in some cases three, shaft sizes are
standard for each size of housing; the thrust
capaci ty is somewhat less for the larger sizes in
each housing. The largest just clears the stand
ard base ring bore, which does not exceed 56
per cent of the mounting number.
End closures on the FF and FTF bearings
and the LD line shaft bearings are usually of
the "plain" type, consisting of a simple ring, in
halves, grooved to hold a felt wiping ring and
bolted to the ends of the housing base and cover.
For the LG and LGL bearings a somewhat more
elaborate closure of the same general type is
provided, as shown in Figure 13, and also for
the type L journal bearings.
In dredge pump applications, in which there
is danger of contamination of the lubricant by
water fowing along the shaft, a water thrower
is provided on the shaft, at the end of the bear
ing adjacent to the pump. A lip on the thrower
rim overhangs the outer edge of the closure.
Therefore it is important to note that it is neces
sary to remove the thrower before the bearing
housing cover can be lifted.
A special form of the LG mounting is Style
LGL. This has two similar, self-aligning bear
ings, one on each side of the thrust bearing, but
their bores may be diferent. Base dimensions
are the same as in Style LG. The second journal
bearing extends beyond one end of the base, a
convenient construction for some uses. See Fig
ure 2, page 6.
Other special housings can be furnished if
necessary to ft the customer's requirements.

Dimensions

The sketch above is dimensioned only with


letters, and is to be used as a reference in
correspondence.
Shaft size is determined from power, revolu
tions and type of drive; also by the need of avoid
ing torsional vibrations. The exact diameter
A should agree with one alternative in dimen
sion table for the style of bearing chosen (FF,
FTF or LG).
Collar size is governed by the shaft diameter
and the thrust load. Thickness X and diam
eter Yare given, for each nominal bearing size,
in the dimension tables, and should be strictly
followed.
Length dimensions KK, LL and QQ are gov
erned by the dimensions of the housing selected
and its built-in journal bearing. Dimensions BB
and CC are determined by the customer; but of
course they must be sufcien t to keep the cou
pling bolt heads clear of the limit lines for
removing the end closures. These limit lines
are shown by dimensions D and Z in the
dimension tables.
Coupling fange dimensions are chosen in ac
cordance with accepted standards, or may be
made to match special mating fanges. The
diameter is usually not less than 1 % to 2 times
the shaft diameter. The thickness is usually from
to of the shaft diameter. Sometimes condi-

LJI: Flange and bolt
dimensions to be determined by the purchaser.
tions call for removable couplings, either rigid or
fexi ble types.
Collar, journal and fanges must be exactly
square and true. The collar faces, and the shaft
in way of journal bearing and end closures,
should be fnished by lapping or polishing.
Bearings for propulsion may be placed with
the journal either forward or aft of the collar.
Thrust bearings on dredges are placed with the
collar nearer the pump, the journal bearing
nearer the drive.
Machining
Turn both collar faces and journal at one
setting in the lathe. Collar thickness must be
the same all around, and collar faces must be
fat as tested by straightedge held in radial posi
tion. Journal must be turned truly cylindrical
throughout.
Chamfer collar rim slightly and turn smooth.
Final Finishing
Collar faces must be fnished very smooth.
Tool marks must be removed by lapping, by
smooth grinding or by light polishing in lathe,
using a fne fat oil stone with kerosene, holding
stone in hand and moving back and forth slowly
while collar revolves.
Journal surface must be made smooth by
lapping, by smooth grinding, or by hand stoning
while revolving in lathe.

Rated Capacities of Journal Bearings (in Pound,)
At any speed, the capacity of a given journal
bearing i s nearly proportional to the oil viscos
icy. Large bearings carry greater loads per square
inch than slllall ones.
For each speed tabulated below, the capacity
is stated at two viscosities, 150 and 300 seconds
S:),bolt, al lle operating lempert/lure. Capacities
for other speeds and other viscosities are easily
i nterpolated. For bearings whose lengths are
more or less than the diameter, apply the Rating
Factors at lower right. Long bearings frequently
wear unevenly due to natural shaft Aexure. Our
standard L and LO bearings should not be
loaded over 40 pounds per square inch o( pro
jected area, even when supplied with very heavy
oil. Consult \b about heavy loads and other un
lIsual conditions, sllch as very high or very
low speeds.

Spare Parts
A Kingsbury Bearing correctly chosen, prop
erly aligned and supplied with clean oil, is
practically indestructible for the life of the ship.
However, spare parts are customarily provided
as a matter of insurance.
For marine machinery, American Bureau of
Shipping rules will usually determine what
spare parts are required. The usual spares
are thrust shoes, occasionally seal packing,
and also journal bearing shells and cooler parts
where ftted.
The other parts of the bearing practically
never need replacemen t. Therefore, there is no
need to carry complete bearings as spares.
Engineering Data Needed
with Orders
(A) Thrust load* (maximum).
(B) Journal bearing load (if unusually heavy).
(C) Shaft diameter through bearing.
(D) Revolutions per minute (at full power).
(E) Is cooling water available?
(F) Is external lubricating system available?
(G) Sketches showing unusual mounting conditions, space limitations, etc.
(H) Bearing number contemplated (e.g. LG-25, L-27, etc. , etc.).
(J) Spare parts req uiremen ts.
*For propeller thrust service, if load is unknown, give horsepower per shaft, vessel speed, and type
of vessel.
*For dredge pump service, if load is unknown, give horsepower, impeller outside diameter, and
diameter of eye (suction opening in impeller.)
Standard Guarantee
Any bearing or part furnished by us, which
shall prove defective in design, material or
workmanship, within one year after installation
and test, will be replaced without charge f. o.b.
Philadelphia, if returned to our factory. This
period is, however, limited to a maximum of
two years from date of shipment from the
24
factory. No allowance will be made for labor
or other expense in connection therewith un
less au thorized in writing by an ofcer of the
Company.
For oil coolers and cooling coils, in accord
ance with usual trade practice, there is no
specifc guarantee period.
