Oil-free Bushing, Center Flanged

Tailored to meet your design and performance needs, VIIPLUS’s flange bearings that provide strength and performance. They last longer and can save you money over time.

Material: High Tensile Brass Alloy

Solid Lubricant Embedded

Flange Integrated Oil-Free Bushing

  • Spec-designed to have the flanges integrated into one in order to reduce the assembly time.

  • Center flanged bronze bushings are made from bronze, which is an alloy composed primarily of copper and tin. Bronze is known for its excellent wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and ability to withstand high loads, making it an ideal material for bushings.

  • Prevents the oil free bushing from protruding toward the opposite side of its mounting side and allows for space saving

  • Enables to mount a workpiec

Graphite Plug Center Flanged Bronze Bushing

The flange bronze bushing is manufactured with machined holes and/or grooves into which graphite is inserted. These graphite plugs act as the lubricant between the shaft and the bearing. The graphite inserts provide a slippery coating that acts as ongoing, reliable lubrication between the surfaces.

Center flanged bronze bushings are designed with a flange in the center, which makes installation easier and ensures proper alignment between the bushing and the surrounding components. This design also helps distribute the load evenly across the bushing, improving its overall performance and lifespan.

Custom Your Flanged Bronze Bushing

Graphite flange bearings are commonly used in applications requiring a completely self-lubricating, copper base alloy bearing material. Choose from our many standard sleeve and flanged bearings, in both metric and imperial sizes, or let us produce a custom part to your exact specifications. The VIIPLUS bearing requires no oil or grease, instead, a graphite film is formed between the surfaces to provide a reliable, mechanical barrier of lubrication. Additional capabilities include graphite-filled grooves and wear plates. Oilless Bearings can be manufactured from a number of bronze alloys to meet the specific requirements of your application.

Reasons for Selecting Plug Graphite Self-Lubricating Products

  • 1. Total Self-Lubricating: No oil or grease is required, The self-lubricating features allow bearings to be used where oiling is difficult, and expensive to implement, and where grease/oil cannot be used. Excellent lubrication is achieved even under high loads at low speeds.

  • Excellent Wear Resistance: achieved under severe working conditions, such as heavy load, low velocity, reciprocating, oscillating, and intermittent motions where the formation of oil film is difficult.

  • Low Coefficient of Friction: 0.04 to 0.2 typical: Self-lubrication with specially embedded solid lubricants reduces friction.
  • Wide Operating Temperature Ranges: -415° ° to 1,100° °F Superior performance is exhibited under high and low-temperature conditions.
