The benefits of oilless bronze bearings
Thrust washer bearings are pivotal in machinery where axial loads are frequent. They facilitate smooth movement and reduce friction, ensuring that mechanical systems run efficiently. Without these bearings, excessive friction could lead to damage, reduced performance, and the need for frequent maintenance.
To protect more valuable underlying parts, bronze thrust washer bearings can be utilized. The thrust washer bearing supports the axial load on a shaft. They are designed to prevent movement along the axis of a shaft. Graphite Thrust washer bearing can be grooved to provide additional lubrication distribution. For high heat applications, these grooves can be filled with graphite to provide self-lubricating properties to the washer.
