Tilted pad thrust bearing are designed to transfer high axial loads from rotating shafts with minimum power loss. They are used in many different applications including: hydroelectric generators, turbines (steam, hydraulic, and gas), pumps, high speed blowers, electric motors, etc. Mostly pads made of two layers i.e. face layer made of TEFLON material and backing layer made of steel is used. Location where maximum pressure and temperature is generated in case of centrally pivoted tilted pad thrust bearing is known with the help of research paper published previously. This research paper throws light on verifying the maximum pressure and temperature results obtained previously in case of centrally pivoted tilted pad made of Teflon material.
