Graphite Metallizing Corporation (Yonkers, NY) is announcing a family of tin-based babbit GRAPHALLOY materials for high-temperature bearing applications. The materials are available in NSF-certified grades for drinking water, and are FDA-accepted. They are environmentally-safe through the elimination of the need for grease or oil. By not using liquid lubricants, contamination and maintenance can also be reduced. Other features include:
- The ability to replace plastics because the GRAPHALLOY materials offer better head dissipation and will not melt.
- The capability to work in low-temperature applications (-400°F) by eliminating the issues cause by the viscosity of grease.
- A self-lubricating construction that can survive in environments up to 1,000°F.
