  • Plain Bearings Outperform Rolling-Element Bearings
    ' design simplicity has its advantages. That's not to say that plain bearings are right for every application where rolling-element bearings are currently installed. Extremely precise shaft-location or low-friction requirements, for example, could preclude the use of plain bearings. But for many
  • Wear Capabilities and Limits of Plain Bearings
    Previous installments of TechTalk have discussed how using plastic bearings can help reduce wear and how different types of shaft materials affect wear and bearing life. In this installment, I a ll be discussing wear itself in more specific terms, and how different wear limits are dependent
  • Wood you believe bearings?
    Rock-maple plain bearings can tolerate higher shaft speeds and loads than their plastic counterparts. Woodex bearings come in flange, pillow-block, roll-end, spherical, and hanger types. Style 226 hanger bearings and brackets are typically used in conveyors for grain, slurries, and dry chemicals
  • Slimmed-Down Magnetic-Bearing Systems Fit More Rotating Machinery Applications
    Smaller, streamlined electronics make lubricant-free, low-friction magnetic bearings feasible for more rotating machines. * Magnetic bearings support rotating shafts in five axes without solid or fluid lubricants. * Advances in electronics allow previously bulky controllers to mount on or near
  • Felt Seals
    Unlike lip seals and squeeze packings, felt seals require relative little shaft pressure to function effectively. They are commonly used near ball and roller bearings as lubricant retainers. Advantages of felts seals include: Wool felt resists dilute mineral-acid solutions, unless continuously
