These new bearings are specifically designed for dry running in high temperature applications. Product is designed for use at temperatures ranging from 350 to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit in oxidizing atmospheres, and from 350 to 6000 degrees Fahrenheit in non-oxidizing atmospheres. At these high temperatures, oil-grease lubricated ball, roller and sleeve bearings are problematic because the oil-grease lubricants can melt, volatilize or carbonize. Plastic and composite bearing materials can soften, deform or melt at such high temperatures. Because the product is made from carbon-graphite, they are not subject to the shortcomings associated with petroleum-based lubricants at elevated temperatures. They are dimensionally stable and are not subject to melting, softening or deformation. Bearings are ideal for use in continuous dryers, high temperature conveyors, kiln cars and high temperature ventilation dampers. They are also a great choice for other high temperature equipment, including continuous bakery ovens, screw conveyors, valves and paint dryers.
