Self Lubricating Bearings - Applications Overview

Sintered self-lubricating sliding bearings are the ideal solution for applications where lubrication is problematic or even impossible. The pores in the surface layer of a sintered self-lubricating bearing are filled with lubricating oil making any further lubrication unnecessary.

The pore structure forms a labyrinth of interconnected pores of controlled size and volume, thus allowing uniform lubrication over the entire bearing surface. The oil volume dispensed increases automatically with the service temperature rising as a result of the increasing rotational speed.
