Carbon, Graphite, Silicon Carbide and Alumina Sliding Bearings
We have been manufacturing carbon and graphite bearings for over 30 years, making us one of the world’s foremost innovators in the development of products from these outstanding materials.
Our wide range of bearings are also available in silicon carbide and have been selected due to their superior tribological and wear characteristics. These materials are traditionally used as a bearing material, particularly when a conventional lubricant is not possible and also where the performance of other lubrication is poor.
Making bearings from these materials ensures a broad spectrum of benefits, including:
- Low wear rate
- Mechanical strength in compression
- High strength at elevated temperatures
- Electrically conductive
- Relatively low density
- High thermal conductivity
- High resistance to thermal shock
- Chemically inert
- Easily machined to close tolerances
- Dimensionally stable
These properties mean that bearings made from these materials are excellent for applications within the Aerospace, Automotive, Chemical Processing, Healthcare, Mining, Oil & Gas, Pharmaceutical, Food and Industrial markets.
