Glacier & Bronze Bush?
DU Glacier Bushes are plain bearings that perform well against both wear and friction over a wide range of temperatures, speeds, and radial and axial loads. DU Glacier Bushes are ideal for construction, agricultural machines and other applications requiring rotating and sliding motions. Usually, DU Glacier Bushes operate without lubricants and are resistant to most solvents and industrial liquids. DX Glacier bushes are slightly lubricated and are commonly utilised in pneumatic, automotive, and medical equipment.
Bronze Bushing offers low friction resistance, good machining properties and is resistant to corrosion. They are best suited to low-speed, high-load and severe-duty industrial applications and machinery.
Common bronze bushing materials and their uses include:
Oilite: Oil impregnated bronze bushings formed using powder metallurgy. Applications depend on the type of oil used and may accommodate high and low speed machinery, high and low temperature machinery, and food-grade applications.
Copper: Most often an alloy of bronze with tin, aluminium or silicon, these alloys have high corrosive resistance. Also known as Leaded Gunmetal Bronze or LG2.
Popular designs include bronze alloy graphite oil-less bushings, flanged bronze bushings and sintered bronze bushings.
Pine Rivers Bearings also stocks a range of Solid and Hollow LG2 Bronze Bar.
