Reduce Maintenance Efforts and Costs as well as Boost Productivity with Self Lubricating Bearings

Bearings are used in a variety of industries and as such, it is important for bearings to be classed, so that their strength and durability is known before they are used in any particular application. There are 3 main classes of bearings available as follows:

  • Class 1 – these bearings require an external lubricant source.
  • Class 2 – these bearings contain most of their own lubrication in the material walls of the unit. However, they will still need external lubricant to be applied from time to time.
  • Class 3 – these bearings are made from and as such, are known as self-lubricating bearings. There is absolutely no need for external lubrication to be applied.

In Class 3, there are variations of the self lubricating bearing. One particular variation is that of sintered bearings. For example, you can find composite sintered self lubricating bearings stocked at Technoslide. We service the following industries:

  • Marine
  • Petrochemical
  • Mining
