Bronze is a versatile and commonly used material for bushings because it comes in many alloys and compositions.
Bronze sleeve bushings or bronze bearings are hard and strong, as opposed to brass bushings, which are softer and more easily deform. Thus, bronze bushings have longer lifespans than brass bushing sleeves. They resist shock and impact, wear and corrosion.
They require an external lubricant, for example grease or oil, at installation and during operation to reduce friction and wear.
They are more often used in low-speed, high-load and severe-duty industrial applications and machinery for iron and steel manufacturing, food processing, injection molding, automotive machines, earth moving machinery, pumps and other industries.
Two common bronze bushing materials and their uses include:
Popular designs include bronze alloy graphite oil-less bushings, flanged bronze bushings and sintered bronze bushings.
