Excellent quality, consistent on time delivery and superior product knowledge. Their salespeople and support staff are very helpful, professional and attentive. I wish we had 100 other supply partners like Advanced Industrial.

Plastic Bearing Design

PV at its most simple level is an equation to derive an understandingof the heat generated by the interaction between bearing wear surface and shaft. It is the heat that is generated during typical bearing lifecycling that can cause premature bearing failure as a result of the wear surface degrading or the engineered backing material going througha gradual reduction in mechanical or physical properties. The calculation of PV can vary slightly depending on the type of bearing being evaluated (journal bearing, thrust washer, flanged bearing or linear bearing); however, in most cases the bearing calculation will follow the example below.
