Graphite Self Lubricating Bronze Bushing

Graphite Self-lubricating bronze bushing lubrication principle is in the process of sliding friction between shaft and bearing, part of the graphite particles transferred to the friction surface of the shaft and bearing, forming a more stable solid lubrication diaphragm to prevent direct adhesion wear of the shaft and bearing.

Graphite Plugged Bronze Bushings

This rational combination combines the respective performance advantages of metal alloys and non-metallic wear-reducing materials to complement each other, i.e. with the high load-bearing capacity of metals and the lubricating properties of wear-reducing materials. So It is especially suitable for heavy load, low speed, reciprocating or oscillating, and other difficult to lubricate and form oil film occasions, and is not afraid of water and other acid corrosion and scouring.

Benefit Of Self Lubricating Bronze Bushing

  • No need for oil supply units, oil filling holes, oil tank machining, etc., which significantly reduces manufacturing costs

  • The reduction in movement costs significantly reduces the amount of lubricant used and the maintenance costs of the equipment, in addition to eliminating the risks caused by insufficient oil supply.

  • Reduced design time Oil-free allows for significant simplification of design, structure, etc., reducing costs and saving design time

  • The use of self-lubricating bearings also improves mechanical properties, extends service life, and increases reliability

  • Recycling and environmental protection of lubricating oils without the need for waste oil recycling and disposal contribute to environmental protection.

Self-lubricating Bushes VS Oil Impregnated Bronze Bushing

Oil Impregnated Bronze Bushing is a combination of metal powder, there are 10 ~ 40% of the structure of the gap; Graphite plugged bronze bushing matrix is centrifugal casting and made; matrix density is relatively high, higher strength, the service life is longer than Oil Impregnated Bronze Bushing.

Sinter Bronze Bushing

Oil Impregnated Bronze Bushing is a sintered body made of metal powder as the main raw material by the powder metallurgy method. Using the porous nature of the sintered body, it is impregnated with 10% to 40% (volume fraction) of lubricating oil and is used in a self-oiled state. When the bearing temperature rises during operation, the coefficient of expansion of the oil is greater than that of the metal, so it automatically enters the sliding surface to lubricate the bearing. Oiled bearings can be used for a longer period, and are often used in situations where refueling is not convenient.

Graphite Bronze Bushing

Graphite Bronze Bushing is a kind of both metal bearing characteristics and self-lubricating bearing characteristics of the novel lubrication bearing, by the metal substrate to bear the load, the special formula of solid lubricating materials to play a lubricating role. It has a high bearing capacity, impact resistance, high-temperature resistance, self-lubricating ability, and other characteristics. especially for heavy load, low speed, reciprocating or oscillating, and other difficult to lubricate and form oil film occasions, but also not afraid of water and other acid corrosion and erosion.

Why Use self lubricating bronze bushing?

To ensure the stability and reliability of bronze bearings, most bearings lubricate with oil:

  • Reduce internal friction and wear and to prevent combustion:
  • Extend the fatigue life of the bearing
  • Discharge frictional heat or heat transferred from the outside;
  • Provide some vibration absorption capacity from the oil film.

Protecting the Environment & Reliable

However, one of the biggest disadvantages of adding lubricating oil is the need for good sealing properties, otherwise, leakage will occur, and certain equipment with special requirements does not allow lubricating oil leakage, so people use graphite instead of lubricating oil. self-lubrication bronze bushing was invented, which not only has the advantage of containing lubricating oil in the bearing but also eliminates the environmental pollution caused by leakage.

Bronze Bushing Applications

They are more often used in low-speed, high-load, and severe-duty industrial applications and machinery for iron and steel manufacturing, food processing, injection molding, automotive machines, earthmoving machinery, pumps, and other industries.

Two common self-lubrication bronze sleeve bearing materials and their uses include:

Oil-impregnated bronze bushings formed using powder metallurgy. Applications depend on the type of oil used and may accommodate high and low-speed machinery, high and low-temperature machinery, and food-grade applications.
Graphite Impregnated Bronze: Graphite provides a layer of dry lubrication that operates in high-temperature environments. 841 bronze bearings are porous and embedded with graphite for continuous lubrication.

Engineered Solutions – Our Bronze Bushing

A bushing is a component commonly used to fill the gap between parts. Self-lubricating bronze bushings are parts that support a rotating shaft. Friction is bound to occur on the part that supports the rotating shaft. To reduce this friction, bearings must be used to keep the rotating shaft in the correct position.
Self-lubricating bushings are bearings that do not require lubrication, i.e. they do not need to be filled with oil to operate. They are also known as oilless bearings.

Self-lubricating bushings have lubricating oil or embedded solid lubricant in the bearing body, so it is a kind of “self-lubricating use” or “can reduce the number of lubrication” structure of the slide bearing.

Self-lubricating bronze bearings are oilless bronze sleeve bushings also called plain bearings which are made from a mixture of copper, tin, and zinc which creates the bronze alloy. Bronze bearings are commonly found within industrial machinery where they can withstand higher loads and higher speeds than steel or plastic versions. and bronze bearings are one of the most common bearing types. They are an ideal solution for many applications like food processors, automotive PTO shafts, Washers and dryers, compressors, and engine crankshafts.

Bronze is a versatile and commonly used material for bushings because it comes in many alloys and compositions. Thus, bronze bushings have longer lifespans than brass bushing sleeves. They resist shock and impact, wear, and corrosion.
Unlike oil-impregnated bushings, cast bronze bushings are not formed from powder. Instead, they are formed from a solid or hollow bronze cast bar that undergoes machining processes designed to achieve a precise final shape. First bronze is continuous or centrifugally cast into a solid or hollow bar.
