A full line of sleeve and flanged Dri-Plane© Bearings are now available for purchase online on bronzebushings.com. The Dri-Plane© Bearing is the latest advancement in sintered bearing technology. Traditionally sintered bronze bearings have been impregnated with an oil lubricant to give the bearing the added benefit of self-lubrication. Dri-Plane© Bearings substitute the impregnated oil with a proprietary solid lubricant. The result of this is a self-lubricating bearing without the possibility of contamination that is associated with the traditional oil impregnated bronze bushings.
The solid lubricant also makes the Dri-Plane© Bearings suitable for environments up to 700° Fahrenheit. These additional benefits now open a large variety of applications that were previously unsuitable for sintered bronze bearings. Many customers are successfully replacing plastic bearings with the superior sintered bronze Dri-Plane© Bearing. This replacement gives the user a longer, more reliable bearing life and reduces maintenance costs.
