GRAPHALLOY(reg) self-lubricating, graphite-based, metal-impregnated bearings can be used in repeat-use-food- contact equipment and maintain a constant low coefficient of friction over their entire operating lives. The bearings are not subject to seizures, binding, or sudden failure. In addition, they can withstand temperatures from -450 to 750F, can be immersed in liquids, and subjected to extreme pressures. GRAPHALLOY bearings are highly resistant to corrosion, abrasion, and oxidation and have the ability to function under adverse conditions in substances such as bleaching agents, oils, liquid oxygen, jet fuel, chemicals, and some molten materials.
