Hydroelectric power generation
Metallic bearings embedded with a solid lubricant that can be used underwater and composite plastic bearings with a high load capacity and a low degree of swelling are also available, so they can be used in acidic rivers where high corrosion resistance is required.
Wind power generation
It is used in the hydraulic blade pitch control system of wind turbines.
The angle of the blades of wind turbines are changed depending on wind conditions. The use of low-friction Oiles bearings enables precise control even with slight oscillations, helping to improve the efficiency of power generation.
Thermal power generation
Stoker furnaces used in incinerators at waste disposal facilities are stepped, with a movable fire grate and a fixed fire grate alternately arranged, in order to burn waste evenly.
Oiles bearings are used in the wheel, drive shaft linkage, and cylinder clevis on the movable fire grate that slides along the rail of the fixed fire grate.
