Expansion of a bridge In order to transfer the imposed load, Bridge bearings are structural equipment positioned between the bridge’s substructure and superstructure. Additionally, C86300 bronze wear plate allow for slight movements between those structures. Rotational, translational, horizontal, and transverse movements are all possible. These bearings enable regulated motion while lowering the motion’s stresses.
Manganese bronze C86300 conforming to ASTM B22 specifications is used for its ability to withstand heavy loads and very slow movements as well as its very high tensile strength, reaching 110ksi, and its high yield strength of 62ksi. Combined with solid lubricant graphite plugs. Achieves self-lubrication and maintenance-free capability.
