Bearing For Mud Pump

The mud pump supplies the drilling rig with a constant flow of high-pressure mud (drilling fluid). These positive displacement pumps operate up to 10,000 psiresulting in high radial loads at the typical bearing positions including the crosshead bearings, eccentric bearings, crankshaft main bearings and driveshaft bearings.


The solution: Schaeffler provides complete Mudpump bearing sets for some of the most technically advanced pump designs in the industry. These bearing arrangements provide high capacity systems ideally suited for the increasing demands with increasing drilling depths.
