BG bushes with solid lubricant feature a base structure in bronze (BG2) with cavities filled with solid lubricants, normally graphite. The bushes may also be produced in bronze (BG1), cast iron (BG4), steel (BG5), and a bimetal alloy (BG3) upon request.
Thanks to the self-lubrication feature, this special structure improves the life of the application, therefore guaranteeing high performance over time.
SPECIAL TECHINCAL FEATURES
The self-lubrication feature proves to be particularly important when applications are used in certain conditions, for example a very low or very high operating temperature, or in cases where external lubrication is not possible.
BG bushes with solid lubricant are used predominantly in the following sectors:
* metallurgical industry;
* machinery for the mining sector;
* shipping industry;
* hydraulic turbines;
* environments with corrosive agents or other chemical substances;
