Graphite Plugged Bronze Bushings are all self-lubricating and maintenance free. These bushings are machined out of continuous cast bronze and plugged with solid lubricant plugs. A bushing and it's mating
surface should always be seperated by a film of lubricant. With Graphite Plugged Bronze Bushings no form of supplementary lubrication is required.
A film of solid lubricant is transferred unto the shaft as it starts to run. The self-lubricating features allow the graphite plugged bushings to be used where oiling is difficult, expensive to implement and where
grease/oil cannot be used. Excellent lubricaiton is achieved even under high loads at low speeds.
The applications for graphite plugged bushings are virtually unlimited. From hard to maintenace applications to high temperature enviroments to heavy loaded
applications, graphite plugged bronze bushings exhibit an excellent service and wear resistance. Such applications include:
Steel Mills, Furnace dragouts, Drying Equipment, Roasters, Heat Exchangers, Press dies, Assembly lines, Machine tools, Chain Conveyors, Off shore structures, Deck cranes,
Winches, Hatch covers, Rudder arms, Hoisting equipment, Tire & Paper Mills, Toggle link bearings for injection mold machinery, Mixers, Grinders, Pulverizers, Construction machinery, Mining
rigs, Arm link bearings, Power shovels, and more.
