Axial and radial bearings

Material: carbon graphite, electrographite, silicon carbide- reaction sintered

Impregnation: resin, antimony, bearing metal

  • sliding bearings
  • sliding bearings forvarious types of pumps where carbon materials are used
  • carbon bearings for various types of machines and equipment

Application of axial-radial sliding bearings:

  • chemical industry, where chemically aggressive media are used
  • petrochemical industry, refineries and oil platforms
  • pharmaceutical industry /FDA/
  • food industry /FDA/
  • sewage treatment plants
  • circulation pumps for cooling in nuclear power plants
  • high pressure gear-pumps

Unique features of carbon products and their use:

  • use without lubricating medium
  • corrosion resistance such as e.g. acids, hydroxides, vapors and gases
  • efficiency of pumped media with low lubrication capability, e.g. water and gasoline
  • heat and form stability at high temperatures
  • thermal shock resistance

Companion part:

  • silicon carbide
  • tungsten carbide
  • aluminum oxide
  • hard-metals
  • gray iron
  • alloyed steel, non-alloyed and nitrided steel
  • ceramics
  • glass
