This is the normal translation - but I'm no expert on pumps.
A Google search yielded this, which might be relevant:
The mill rides on slide shoe bearings that are lubricated hydrostatically or hydrodynamically, depending on the required loads. The bearing system is provided with an independent high and low pressure pump and can be equipped with two, four, or six slide shoes. The slide shoe bearings have self-aligning capability that helps prevent edge pressure if a problem develops as a result of thermal deformation or incorrect fabrication tolerances.
I hope this is helpful.
