DryLube bearings eliminate the need for grease relubrication and perform maintenance-free over a wide temperature range, making them suitable for hostile and extreme temperature applications.
The bearings are filled with a dry lubricant based on graphite or molybdenum disulfide and a resin binder. The lubricant is injected into the bearing’s free space, bonded to the cage, and cured until it solidifies. This dry lubricant maintains a thin film on the bearing’s raceways and rolling elements to protect against metal-to-metal contact and any potential damage caused by solid contaminants.
The bearings provide effective lubrication for temperature applications up to 350°C, achieve higher speed capabilities than their standard graphite-cage counterparts, and exhibit minimal lubricant loss over time.
