Hercules Pot-Type Bearing (HPT)
HERCULES Pot-Type Bearings can be used in steel or concrete structures. This low profile, compact bearings are particularly useful to transmit large vertical load while accommodating large movements and multi-directional rotation. Separate mechanisms for rotation and translation (where applicable) provide minimum eccentricity of the load and minimum frictional resistance to movement. High horizontal loads both in longitudinal and transverse directions can also be accommodated simultaneously.
Their design advantages make them particularly suitable for medium to long span structures e.g. bridges, pipelines, power stations, offshore platforms etc. The continuous research and development on Hercules Pot-type bearings combine simplicity, design efficiency, versatility and economy. They have gained successful track record for its quality and durability throughout the world since its introduction in 1972.
