Self-Lubricating Bushings for Long-Life and Continuous Service
GRAPHALLOY® Type 1017 Split Bushings Provide Continuous Service
YONKERS, NY - GRAPHALLOY® Type 1017 Self-lubricating Split Bushings, available from Graphite Metallizing Corp., are ideal for screw conveyor applications.
GRAPHALLOY® bushings with long life and low friction characteristics have a history
of solving bushing problems for screw conveyors. These bushings contain no oil to
contaminate the conveyed materials and are particularly suitable for screw conveyor
installations including agitator or batch mixers. Type 1017 bushings are split to provide for easy installation along the conveyor.
Type 1017 bushings can withstand dust, chemical attack, caustic liquids and high
temperature environments. They provide superior performance in continuous duty
operations and in applications where maintenance intervals are infrequent, or where
useful life must be prolonged.
GRAPHALLOY®, a graphite/metal alloy formed from molten metal, graphite and
carbon, is insoluble in most industrial liquids and is not affected by submersion in most acids, alkalies, hydrocarbons or liquid gases. GRAPHALLOY does not deform under
load and maintains dimensional stability.
GRAPHALLOY® products work where oil-based lubricants oxidize and where plastic
bushings fail or prove troublesome. GRAPHALLOY bushings are applied in refineries,
paper mills, waste-to-energy plants, glass plants, steel mills and power plants. Grades
are available for temperatures to 750°F in air, and special grades provide reliable service up to 1000°F and higher in non-oxidizing atmospheres.
GRAPHALLOY® bushings and bearings are a proven solution for even the most
challenging plant maintenance and new equipment design requirements.
