Press Release Summary:
Metcar grades M-161 and M-162 mechanical carbon/graphite Babbit impregnated materials are suited for lubricating in submerged low viscosity fluids such as water and fuels. For dry environments, self-lubricating materials provide oil-free lubrication at high temperatures. Materials are utilized for moderate loads at medium and high speeds and bearings manufactured from them are low in friction and will not score mating shaft.
Original Press Release:
Metcar® Babbitt Bearing Materials for Elevated Temperatures up to 350°F
Self-lubricating bearings for dry and submerged applications
Metallized Carbon Corporation, a global leader in the manufacture of oil-free, self-lubricating materials, offers Metcar grades M-161 and M-162 mechanical materials for running at elevated temperatures. These unique carbon/graphite Babbit impregnated materials are designed to operate in difficult environments where conventional lubricating methods cannot be used. This proprietary Babbit impregnation provides excellent wear resistance and enhanced lubrication for bearings and thrust washers for submerged and dry environments.
Operating at temperatures up to 350°F these materials are unrivaled for lubricating in submerged low viscosity fluids such as water and fuels. For dry environments they provide excellent oil free lubrication at high temperatures. These Metcar grades are typically utilized for moderate loads at medium and high speeds. Designed to provide maximum lubrication, bearings manufactured from these materials are low in friction and will not score the mating shaft.
Bearings manufactured from Metcar materials are self-lubricating, non-galling, dimensionally stable and have high compressive strength. Boasting excellent lubricating qualities and long life, these materials are completely homogenous and provide continuous lubrication for their service life, making them an excellent candidate for bearings, bearing assemblies and mechanical components for operating at elevated temperatures.
