Self-lubricating Bearings VS Oilite Bushings
Custom Self-lubricating bearing – Graphite Plugged Bronze Bushing;
Bespoke Oilite sintered bearings and structural powdered metal components
A Self-lubricating Bearing
Self-lubricating bearings are not bearings pre-coated with grease or oil – Graphite Plugged Bronze Bushing that has Solid lubricant in the bearing and flows out little by little due to frictional heat during use.
This kind of Self-lubricating bearings for heavy-duty conditions. Operate the machine smoothly without the need for additional lubricants. It is widely used in automotive product lines, water engineering, dam gate, plastic industries, successive casting machines, steel rollers in the metallurgy industry, mineral machines, ships, turbo generators, hydraulic turbines, and injection molding machines.
An Oilite Bushings – Oil-Impregnated Bronze Bushings
Oilite bushing is a Sinter bronze component with high porosity (20-25% in volume), impregnated in a lubricant oil. The oil contained in the porosity provides a constant lubrication between the bearing and shaft, so the system does not need any additional external lubricant.
We manufacture & export an assortment of bearings, bushes, dry bushings, flanged bearings, automotive washers, pump washers, wear plates, and CNC parts.
The Difference Between “Self-Lubricating Bearings” And “Oilite Bushings”
Self-lubricating Bearings VS Oilite Bushings. Bearings are components used to support and also to support the rotating parts on the shaft, Oilite bushings work by impregnating the lubricant into the sliding layer of the bearing. In contrast, self-lubricating bearings are made of graphite impregnated in small holes in the surface of the bushings. When in use, these bushings release the graphite, forming a lubricant film that keeps the machinery running smoothly.
