King Bearings – Engine Bearing specialist

What is the difference between intermediate load capacity and overlay load capacity in Tri-Metal bearings?

Intermediate layer load capacity is the load capacity of the bronze second layer of tri-metal engine bearings. Overlay capacity is the load capacity of the top third layer of a tri-metal bearing like CP & XP. However, the fatigue life of the tri-metal bearing will be determined by the load capacity of the overlay.
