Elastic Bearing

The sliding elastic bearing is composed of rubber bearing, sliding material, sliding panel and upper and lower connecting plates. The elastomeric rubber bearings has sufficient vertical compressive rigidity and bearing capacity; After the bearing starts to slide, the horizontal force of the elastic bearing is only related to the friction coefficient and vertical pressure of the sliding contact surface.It is commonly used as a elastomeric bearing in bridges.As one of the most professional elastomeric bearings manufacturers, Tiantie offers high-quality electromeric bearing to global clients.

Features of Elastic Bearing

  • Strong vertical bearing capacity.

  • Low friction coefficient.

  • Horizontal displacement is not limited by rubber materials.

Application of Elastic Bearing

As a common type of seismic isolators, the elastic bearing is widely used in the seismic isolation design and seismic reinforcement renovation of bridges, buildings, hydropower projects, house seismic facilities and other civil structures.

Why Choose Tiantie Elastomeric Bearings for Your Project?

Tiantie Elastomeric Bearings are the ideal choice for your project due to their exceptional characteristics. With a strong vertical bearing capacity, they provide reliable support for vertical loads. Their low friction coefficient minimizes resistance, ensuring smooth movement. Additionally, the ability for horizontal displacement, unrestricted by rubber materials, offers versatility in structural design. These advantages make Tiantie Elastomeric Bearings the preferred option for projects requiring robust support, minimal friction, and flexibility in structural movement.

How Elastomeric Bearings are Maintained?

Seismic isolation bearings in buildings require regular maintenance to ensure their effectiveness. Maintenance involves monitoring for changes, cleaning to remove debris, lubricating for smooth movement, and replacement when necessary. Adherence to manufacturer's guidelines and employing qualified engineers or contractors is crucial for maintaining the building's seismic base isolation system. Regular maintenance can help prevent potential issues and ensure the building remains safe and resilient in the event of an earthquake.

What is the Lifespan of Elastomeric Bearings?

The lifespan of elastomeric bearings, particularly those used in building seismic isolation, depends on various factors. These elastomeric bearings are crucial for accommodating movements and loads in infrastructure projects. The service life of elastomeric bearings is influenced by factors such as material quality and environmental conditions. High-quality elastomers like neoprene or natural rubber, known for their durability and resistance to weathering and chemicals, are commonly used to ensure longevity. Additionally, the operating environment significantly impacts the service life, with temperature fluctuations, UV exposure, moisture, chemical exposure, and ozone levels affecting the performance and deterioration of the elastomeric material over time. It is essential to consider these factors to ensure the effective and long-lasting performance of elastomeric bearings in building seismic isolation applications.
