This paper describes two new applications for the hydrostatic thrust bearing. The first application is the use of the bearing, when the gap is fixed, as a linear constant resistance. Several bearings have been connected together in parallel to obtain large flow rates at small pressure drops for use as a flowmeter. The second application is the use of a bearing, when modified, as a temperature sensor. Description and performance of this modified design when used as a temperature sensor are given.
