The HP series was developed mainly for drag race applications needing a material that is harder than the Babbitt top layer. These applications demanded a structure that could withstand high loads for short duration and still offer higher embedabilty and compatibility. In response, KING developed the HP Series featuring the Alecular™ metal structure.
The HP series is also suited for many performance applications with nodular cast iron crankshafts, such as street, strip and some levels of circle track racing.
- HP series is particularly suitable for the following cases:
- When a tri-metal bearing’s Babbitt overlay extrudes over the sides, migrates to one end, or is physically removed by the crankshaft
- When the intermediate layer of a tri-metal bearing is exposed, damaging the crank journal and requiring expensive grinding or replacement
- When Contaminants enter the oil stream, scratching and damaging the crankshaft journal
High-load, long-duration racing such as circle track, off-road, off-shore, and others that require performance bearings.
15% – 30% greater load capacity than traditional bearings
