  • Bearing Wear
    and self-lubricated bearings wear much faster than fluid-film bearings. Self-lubricating plastic bearings wear at higher rates than boundary-lubricated, metal-alloy bearings. In reciprocating load application, babbitts are subject to fatigue damage in which pieces of the babbitt metal spall out of the surface
  • Tin
    . These low-friction materials may contain high percentages of antimony (to 10%), copper (to 10%), or aluminum (to 80%). They include babbitt metal,
  • Sheath Material Guide
    pots, tinning pots, molten babbitt metal, molten magnesium, molten zinc, petroleum refinery applications such as deqaxing and thermal cracking. Alloy 20: MAX TEMPERATURE: 1800 F or (980 C). Generic version of Carpenter 20CB-3 developed specifically for resistance to sulfuric acid. Also used
  • Lube it for life
    resins used are phenolics, polyesters, epoxies, and furan resins. Resin impregnation produces materials that are impermeable. The most common metal impregnations are babbitt, copper, antimony, bronze, nickel-chrome, and silver. Metal impregnation produces harder and stronger materials. In addition
  • Bearings take the heat
    alloyed with a metal such as copper, babbitt, bronze, or nickel. Speed and load limits are set by a conventional = bearing load in psi and = shaft speed in surface ft/min. is about 12,000 for dry operation
  • Emergency Maintenance for Offshore Gas Platform
    was so abrupt that it went unnoticed - until a lack of lubrication led to the gearbox failure. This lack of lubrication caused the babbitt (an alloy material used to line the sleeve bearings) to actually melt within minutes of the malfunction. In addition, the gear set - now turning at approximately
