Carbon/graphite Babbit impregnated bearing materials are designed to operate in difficult environments up to 350 deg F, where conventional lubricating methods cannot be used
A manufacturer of oil-free, self-lubricating materials, Metallized Carbon Corporation, offers Metcar grades M-161 and M-162 mechanical materials for running at elevated temperatures. These novel carbon/graphite Babbit impregnated materials are designed to operate in difficult environments where conventional lubricating methods cannot be used.
This proprietary Babbit impregnation provides excellent wear resistance and enhanced lubrication for bearings and thrust washers for submerged and dry environments.
Operating at temperatures up to 350 deg F these materials are unrivaled for lubricating in submerged low viscosity fluids such as water and fuels.
For dry environments they provide excellent oil-free lubrication at high temperatures.
These Metcar grades are typically used for moderate loads at medium and high speeds.
Designed to provide maximum lubrication, bearings manufactured from these materials are low in friction and will not score the mating shaft.
* High compressive strength – bearings manufactured from Metcar materials are self-lubricating, non-galling, dimensionally stable and have high compressive strength.
Boasting excellent lubricating qualities and long life, these materials are completely homogenous and provide continuous lubrication for their service life, making them an excellent candidate for bearings, bearing assemblies and mechanical components for operating at elevated temperatures.
