The design solutions of bearings carrying the shafts of rope wheels on the hoist tower of coal mines consists the rolling bearings or plain journal ones. Plain journal bearings allow for easy assembling and for smooth operation without vibrations. Static characteristics of journal bearings consist of oil film pressure and temperature distributions, static equilibrium position angles, load capacity, oil flow and power loss and their knowledge is the basis of bearing design. The paper comprises the static characteristics of low speed cylindrical journal bearings that are applied in the bearing system of the rope wheels of hoist tower. The calculations of these characteristics were carried-out on the assumption of adiabatic oil film.
