Graphite Plug Bushings

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.

This type of bushing is often referred to in the market as SelfLube, plugged graphite, graphited, or simply self-lubricating.

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, expensive to implement, and where grease/oil cannot be used. Excellent lubrication is achieved even under high loads at low speeds.

  • Excellent Wear Resistance:

    Excellent wear resistance is 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.

Oilless Graphite Bronze Bushings | Made To Order!

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.
