METALLIZED CARBON: Bearings for Dry Running at High Temperature
Metallized Carbon Corp. recently announced the availability of bearings specially designed for dry running in high-temperature applications. Metcar high-temperature bearings are designed for use at temperatures ranging from 350 to 1,000°F in oxidizing atmospheres, and from 350 to 6,000°F in non-oxidizing atmospheres. Because Metcar carbon-graphite bearings rely on graphite for their self-lubricating properties, they are not subject to the shortcomings associated with petroleum-based lubricants at elevated temperatures. In addition, they are reportedly dimensionally stable, and are not subject to melting, softening, or deformation.
Metcar bearings for dry running can be provided to customer prints or custom-designed for specific application dimensions and tolerances. Standard pillow blocks and flange blocks with Metcar bearing inserts are available with cast iron, stamped steel, or stamped stainless steel housings. Metcar high-temperature bearings are also available shrink-fitted into metal housings or metal retaining rings.
