GGB Bearing Technology, formerly Glacier Garlock Bearings, now offers an extended range of self-lubricating METAFRAM sintered bronze and sintered iron bearings.
The bearings from the METAFRAM® series were developed for applications with high sliding speeds, which require low friction and resistance to frequent start/stop operation and corrosion. They are well suited for applications where conventional lubrication is not possible, and can replace existing lubricated bearings.
Manufactured by compressing metal powder under high pressure, the sintered bearings have a porous structure that can be impregnated with lubricants. The standard bearing materials in the METAFRAM® sintered bronze series include GGB-BP25, GGB-FP20 and GGB-SO16 which are available in a standard assortment of cylindrical bearings and flanged bushes.
Additional materials impregnated with suitable solid lubricants such as MoS2 and PTFE are available for applications with extreme temperatures and higher speeds or loads. Equally available on request are sintered bronze and sintered iron plain bearings based on designs and drawings provided by the customer.
