Disktron Bearing Installation

The guided uplift bearings were designed to handle between 57 and 656 kips of vertical service load, between 9 and 197 kips of uplift strength load, and horizontal loads ranging between 42 and 438 kips. The RJ Watson Disktron bearings were also designed to accommodate 3” to 8” of displacement and 0.02 radians of rotation.
