Choosing the right air bearing for the job - All About Air Bearings and Related Information

When choosing an air bearing system, or other Hovair Systems pneumatic powered product, it is important that you select the right air bearing for the particular job you are going to do. Our sales and support team will be helping you with this and they will ensure you make the right decisions for your load moving needs.

Air bearings are available in a variety of sizes, ranging from 12-inch diameter with a weight capacity of ton through to 48-inch diameter with a capacity of 44 tons.

Selecting the right air bearing for the job is probably the most important feature you need to consider when ordering an air bearing system to move your heavy loads. All air bearings are designed to float loads across floor surfaces, and some bearings will lift the load vertically off its base before floating it to its destination.

Hovair Systems offers the option of A-type or B-type bearings to suit the requirements of the application, so it is important to select the right bearing for the job.

In addition to selecting the right air bearing for the job, it is also important to select the right type of load module for the job. There are four basic module options, each designed for a particular style of load moving.
