Designed to be self-lubricating at high temperatures, the Metcar grades M-199 and M-201 carbon/graphite copper impregnated materials operate without lubricants.
Metallized Carbon Corporation (MCC) has developed its Metcar grades M-199 and M-201 high temperature mechanical materials The carbon/graphite copper impregnated materials will operate without lubrication in dry and dust prone environments
This proprietary copper impregnation greatly increases the load carrying capacity for bearings and thrust washers manufactured from these self-lubricating materials, said MCC.
For operating temperatures between 400-750 deg F, these Metcar grades are ideal for bearings and thrust washers in a variety of applications, said MCC.
Applications include the following.
* Kiln cars.
* Continuous dryers.
* Dust conveyors.
* Ventilating dampers.
* High temperature conveyors.
* Applications where conventional lubricants would break down and fail.
Bearings manufactured from Metcar materials are self-lubricating, non-galling, dimensionally stable and have high compressive strength.
Boasting high electrical conductivity, high load capacity and wear resistance, these materials are completely homogenous and provide continuous lubrication for their service life.
MCC said the materials are excellent for bearings and bearing assemblies operating under extreme temperature conditions.
