Airport Industrial Park, 685 Aviation Blvd.
Georgetown, SC 29440
Manufacturer of structural slide bearings for all industries, including oil and chemical refineries, pollution control, power, bridges, pipelines, stadiums and parking structures to accommodate thermal expansion, end-beam rotation, vibration isolation and seismic acceleration.
Conserv manufactures structural preformed fabric reinforced and random fiber reinforced elastomeric bearings, as well as natural rubber and neoprene type (plain) pads. Plain pads are used in commercial and industrial building, petro-chemical, and power plant applications, and are available in standard durometers of 50, 60 or 70. Preformed fabric reinforced elastomeric bearings feature maximum design pressure of 1500 psi, durometer of 90, and maximum compressive strength of 18000 psi.
Con-Serv, Inc. offers shimmed and plain neoprene elastomeric bearing pads. Elastomeric bearing pads provide structural support for bridges, commercial buildings, industrial buildings, petrochemical plant, and power plant applications. Pads are AASHTO grade, and can be bonded with PTFE to use as the lower element in a side bearing. Plain and shimmed bearings are available in standard Shore A durometers of 50, 60, or 70. The maximum temperature at a neoprene bearing is 200°F.
Con-Serv Inc. manufactures slide bearings including CSA types, CSB types, CHP types, high temperature expansion bearings, elastometric bearing, pipe supports, and pot, spherical, radial, and self-aligningbearings. The CSA type slide bearings feature tensile strength from 75 psi to 2000 psi, and are for use against themselves as a slide material. The CCB type slide bearings have tensil strength from 2000 psi to 4000 psi and are for use against a smooth stainless steel surface. The CHP type slide bearings feature a slide surface thickness of 20 GA and employ a stainless steel upper sliding element. The high temperature expansion slide bearings include self-lubricated bronze bearings that are approved for nuclear, structural, industrial and bridge applications.
Con-Serv Inc. manufactures PTFE elastomeric bearings that provide structural support in bridges, commercial and industrial buildings, petrochemical, and power plant applications. The company also produces Teflon slide bearings designed to reduce friction at loaded expansion and contraction joints in bridges, buildings, and pipelines. These products are available as 75 psi to 2000 psi and 2000 to 4000 psi models.
Con-Serv Inc. manufactures high load Teflon slide bearing that feature slide surface thickness of 20 GA and stainless steel slide surface material for major pipeline, bridge, building and industrial applications. The bearings allow a designer high pressure allowable loads at design temperatures up to 500 F. The company also produces Teflon slide bearing that handle compressive load of 75 psi to 2000 psi or 2000 psi to 4000 psi. These bearings also feature tensile strength of 2200 psi or 3300 psi.
