spacer Oil and gas

When drilling a mile or deeper for oil or gas—at temperatures over 300°F and pressures over 10,000 psi—you need bearings you can count on. Kaydon bearings deliver. In fact, Kaydon has been helping energy producers maximize productivity and minimize downtown in harsh environments for more than 70 years. Kaydon's high-precision bearings are long-lasting and backed by technical support around the globe, and include a variety of standard and custom bearings to meet application-specific needs.

Kaydon is North America's leading manufacturer of slewing ring bearings. Kaydon slewing ring bearings transmit and rotate heavy loads precisely and reliably; carry radial, axial, and moment loads simultaneously; and provide exceptional stiffness with low rotational torque. Slewing ring bearings are available in diameters of up to 20' (6.1 m) and configurations to suit almost any application.

Slewing ring bearings

  • Four-point contact ball bearings with integral seals
  • Eight-point contact ball bearings
  • Cross-roller bearings
  • Three-row roller bearings

Kaydon invented the thin section bearing in 1941 and continues to offer the industry's most comprehensive range of styles and sizes. Kaydon Reali-Slim® thin section bearings feature a cross-section that stays constant as the bore diameter increases, providing more dynamic capacity than conventional bearings. This results in significant advantages for oil and gas operations, including space and weight savings; longer life; high-level performance; and design flexibility.

Thin section bearings

  • Bore sizes range from 1" to 40" (25 mm to 1 m)
  • Cross-sections from 0.187" x 0.187" to 1" x 1" (4.75 mm x 4.75 mm to 25 mm x 25 mm)
  • A variety of styles and materials, including stainless steel

Our talented engineering team brings a collective 300 years of experience to each design challenge, with a value orientation that recognizes that customer budgets are not unlimited. Kaydon engineering expertise and assistance goes beyond bearing size and style to recommend application-specific coatings, lubricants, internal fit-up and more.

Kaydon custom bearings offer a Kaydon infinite® variety of custom preload or internal fit, precision class upgrades, custom lubricants, duplexed sets, stacked bearing arrangements, bearing sizes and materials, separator types, cross sections, internal fit ups, and more.

Kaydon's bearing remanufacturing program can rebuild any bearing to meet or exceed OEM specs, regardless of design or configuration, up to 20' (6.1 m) in diameter. Kaydon remanufactured bearings come with a full one-year warranty, but cost much less than new replacements—typically at savings of up to 50%. Learn more about how bearings are remanufactured at our dedicated, Avon, Ohio, USA facility.
