New Trimetal Engine Bearings
Second Generation Bearings Designed for High Load, Long Duration Racing
King Engine Bearings has introduced the second generation of its XP Bearings. The enhanced tri-metal, copper lead construction with nickel barrier of the XP Bearings features King's proprietary SecureBond advanced adhesion process. This unique process provides superior stability between the top and intermediate layers, according to the company.
"Our XP Bearings are ideal for high load, long duration racing such as circle track, off-road, and off-shore in engines using steel crankshafts," said Limor DePetro, director of sales and marketing, King Engine Bearings. "This is another great addition to our line of performance race bearings that reinforces our prominence in race engine bearing technology and design."
The XP Bearings have a .0005˝ enhanced performance Babbitt overlay good for up to 10,000 psi, and as much as 30 percent greater load capacity than traditional bearings. It is suitable for operating temperatures of up to 350 degrees F.
King manufactures a large selection of bearings engineered for specific applications. All King performance bearings feature greater rod bearing height that improves bearing to bore contact/heat transfer and reduces spin potential at high RPMs. Main bearings feature enlarged, chamfered oil holes and 3/4-grooving. In addition, most rod bearings are available with or without dowel holes. King bearings feature the closest wall tolerances in the industry (Bull’s Eye Tolerance), with all shells matched to .0001˝. Main and rod bearings are narrowed for large radii crankshafts.
