Self Lubricating Bearings (SLG) Available in a Range of Metric and Imperial Sizes

Maintenance Engineers have long had a problem with screw conveyor bearings and hanger bearings in inaccessible positions, which require frequent lubrication. The self lubricating (SLG) bearings provide an ideal solution. A solid lubricant is inserted into a conventional plain gun metal bearing in the form of plugs, arranged in a pattern to cover 25-30% of the bearing`s surface. The pattern of this patented feature ensures that the entire surface area of the bearing is lubricated. SLG bearings are maintenance free and will prevent failure due to lack of lubrication. They are available in metric and imperial sizes, mostly from stock as are support tubes and nuts.
