  • Design bearings that don't seize
    or mixed-lubrication regimes. But it can also happen to fully lubricated bearings. Equipment that sits idle for a while between operations is particularly susceptible because oil can creep away or volatilize over time, leaving bearings completely dry at start-up. In fact, anything that interferes with lubricant
  • Lube-for-life journal bearings
    to the pin/bearing interface; scrubbing using a graphite or MoS Sintered bearings disperse a liquid lubricant such as oil, grease, or silicone fluids trapped in the bearing wall. The lubricant eventually runs dry and must be replenished from an external source. Scrubbing mechanisms also rely
  • Wood you believe bearings?
    structure of the wood is such that a complex matrix of tubular cells form pipelines that serve as a sump and metering system for the lubricant. Bores made at right angles to the grain enhance the property. Frictional heat brings lubricant to the load bearing area, while cooling causes it to reabsorb
  • Bearings take the heat
    and oil lubricants aren't an option. Graphite-metal alloy bearings, in contrast, can operate dry for over 50 hr in some cases until fluid is reintroduced. Agrease-filled ball bearing on an oven-door latch seizes and keeps the door from latching. It turns out the +550 F oven temperatures over time
