In the 1960's Glacier of the UK invented the steel-backed, sintered-bronze PTFE lined DU bearing. Like the DU bearings our BU bearings are also used in dry, semi lubricated enviroments. It can substitute a
conventional bearing where saving space is desired. The BU Steel Backed Bushing provides superior shock and impact load resistance. The Steel Backed PTFE Lined bushing maintains a low coefficient of
friction and is usable without lubrication at high load, low speed operations with excellent wear resistance.
It has a wide applicable temperature range from -319 degrees F to 518 degrees F. The thin walls and
lightweight construction enable a compact design of the product.
The Steel Backed Bronze Bushing is used in a variety of applications in a number of industries. Below are a few of the more common uses:
Automobiles: Suspension, Steering, Brake, Clutch, Transmission
Railroad Cars: Side Thrust Asorbers, Automatic Doors
Ships: Steering Linkages, Hatch Covers, Pulley Blocks
Aircraft: Control Linkage, Shock Asorbers, Actuator Valves, WInches
Hydraulic Systems: Rotary Actuator, Gear Pumps, Cylinders, Shock Asorbers, Lucas Hydraulic Pump,
Printing: Offset Printer, Gravure Printer, Mail Printer, Automatic Ticket Bender, Automatic Book Binder
Food Processing: Bottling Machine, Bottle Washer, Automatic Bag Maker, Dairy Processors, Meat Choppers, Mixers
Textile Industry: Spinning frame, Yarn Twister, Jetlooms, Bobinoris, Sheet Roller, Winders
