Original Press Release:
New Series of Frelon® Lined Linear Bearings from Sterling Instrument Offer Load & Wear Rate Design Advantages
New Hyde Park, New York - A new series of 28 Frelon lined plain and flanged sleeve bearings from Sterling Instrument (an ISO 90001 manufacturer) can tolerate up to 1,500 psi over the portion of the bearing that is carrying the load. A 1/2" I.D. Frelon bearing will carry as much load as a 1" I.D. ball bearing. Long service life for these self-lubricated bearings is another major benefit. Although wear rates are affected by surface finish, shaft hardness, length of travel, contamination and lubrication, these bearings last on average 4 to 8 times longer than ball bearings. The Frelon liner material is designed to replace oilite and plastic materials. It is impervious to most industrial chemicals and acids. Surrounding the Frelon is a 6061 Aluminum housing.
Identified as the S99PS3 and S99PS4 Series, they are stocked in inch sizes to fit shafts that range from 3/16" to 3/4" diameter. O.D.'s range from 5/16" to 1". Bearing lengths range from .25" up to 1.00".
