What type of bronze is used for bushings?

SAE841 Sintered Bronze:These oil-impregnated bronze bushings can be used with both high and low speeds, as well as high and low temperatures, depending upon the type of oil. SAE841 is also used for applications requiring food-grade quality.

What type of steel is used for bushings?

These hardened steel bushings are commonly used to protect a housing from premature wear caused by friction with a pin. They are manufactured with high carbon steel and thru-hardened to 56-62 HRC. Hardened steel sleeve bearings require daily or maximum weekly greasing.

What is SAE 863?

SAE 863 is a designation from the Society of Automotive Engineers. SAE 863 refers to a powdered metal product. This sintered metal is an oil impregnated iron copper product. Generally we will supply SAE863 as a finished sleeve bearings. We also sell bar stock of SAE 863 but in shorter lengths, usually only 5” long.

What material is used for bushes?

Bushing materials include cast or machined metals, stabilized polymers (“plastics”), fiber-wound composites, and combinations of different types of materials. Selecting the right bushing for each project requires detailed knowledge of the application requirements and experience with bushing technology.

What is super Oilite?

Super Oilite® is harder and of higher strength than Oilite bronze, although it has a lower speed rating in bearing applications. Oilite self-lubricating bearing products are made by a powder metallurgy process, allowing close control on the manufacturing process.

Which sleeve bushings is self-lubricating?

The self-lubricating graphite plugged bronze sleeve bushings are machined from continuous cast bronze bar stock. They are then milled and plugged with solid lubricant graphite based plugs.

Should you grease nylon bearings?

Nylon bushings (bearings) can be used with or without any lubrication. Nylon bushings are typically very quiet, can be easily molded, exhibit low friction and resist abrasion.

How do I choose a bushing material?

Sliding material and bushing type selection guides

  1. Ambient temperature range. Diagram 1 compares the permissible ambient temperature ranges of the different bushing types and sliding materials under normal operating conditions.
  2. Coefficient of friction.
  3. Load capacity.
  4. Siding velocity.
  5. Shaft recommendations.

What grade of brass is used for bushings?

Tellurium Copper Alloy 145 is an exceptional copper alloy….

Alloy Type Description
954 A popular aluminum bronze that has excellent strength and hardness. Good for usein pressure bearing surfaces.
SAE 841 Oil impregnated alloy that can be machined for close tolerances, used for selflubricating bearings and bushings

What is SAE 64 bronze?

C93700 SAE 64 is a Leaded Tin Bronze. It is sometimes referred to as 80-10-10 Bronze. This references the chemical composition of 80 % Copper, 10 % Tin, and 10% Lead. C937 utilizes the Tin to add strength to the alloy. The addition of lead acts as a natural lubricant and increases the machinability of bronze alloys.

What is SAE 660?

SAE 660 Bronze or C93200 as it also commonly known is a high-leaded tin/ bearing bronze. SAE 660 is one of the most widely used alloys on the Bronze range, mainly due to its versatility as a medium range Bronze that make it suitable for many applications.
