Crosshead Slide

It is a type of linear bearing that is used in reciprocating engines and pumps to guide the movement of the crosshead. The crosshead is a component that connects the piston rod to the connecting rod in reciprocating engines, pumps and compressors. The crosshead slide is typically made of a low-friction material, such as bronze or a composite material, and is designed to be lubricated with oil to reduce wear and friction.

A crosshead slide typically consists of two main components: the crosshead slide shoe and the crosshead slide guide. The crosshead slide shoe is attached to the crosshead and is designed to move along the crosshead slide guide, which is attached to the engine or pump frame.
