Dutco Tennant LLC is one of the leading suppliers of seismic protection devices and solutions for almost over 40 years in the Middle East and GCC region. Our solutions and products have been developed after several researches by various experts. Bridge Bearings and Expansion Joints are very important elements in large infrastructures such as bridges. Bridge bearing ensures load transfer, movement, rotation, vertical or horizontal restraints as required by the design at critical locations in a bridge. Reinforced elastomeric bearings and pot bearings are the most widely used structural bearings. Dutco Tennant LLC has the capability to supply fully integrated bearings, which can be "tailor-made" to meet different design requirements for rotations, restraints, loading, movements, and other requirements. Dutco Tennant has provided Bridge Bearings and Expansion Joints for several prestigious projects in the Middle East and GCC. In the past, Dutco Tennant LLC has supplied solutions for many high profile projects such as Dubai International airport expansion, Dubai parallel Roads, etc. We can provide you more project reference at request. Dutco Tennant LLC has complete knowledge of different project requirements in the Gulf region and therefore we can provide the best solution.
Spherical bearings are manufactured in a wide variety of materials and are designed to offer bearing solutions in almost any operating environment. Dutco Tennant LLC offers a wide range of spherical bearings which are available in inch and metric. The high-quality spherical bearings offered by us are suitable for heavy-duty, off-highway vehicles, agricultural equipment, construction and mining and logging equipment, packaging and textile equipment, and robotics. Spherical Plain Bearings comes with an inner ring with a sphere convex outside surface and an outer ring with a corresponding sphere, but concave inside surface. They are made particularly suitable for bearing arrangements where alignment movements between shaft and housing have to accommodate because of their design, or in places where oscillating or recurrent tilting movements must be permitted at relatively slow sliding speeds.
Our Spherical Bearings are designed to carry combinations of vertical loads, horizontal loads, longitudinal and transversal movements and rotations and they are used in steel and concrete road and railway bridges. The bearing is composed of steel elements coupled with PTFE surfaces to allow movement and rotations. One side of the internal median plate is machined as a spherical surface to allow tilting movement (rotation) whilst on the other side, a flat sliding surface is obtained to allow displacements. Depending on whether the bearing is fixed, guided sliding or a free sliding, they accommodate vertical loads and corresponding horizontal forces, as well as movements in longitudinal or transversal directions.
