Bearings • Self-Lubricating Bearings
Featuring a lubricant contained within the bearing walls, self-lubricating plain bearings are used in applications where excessive friction is a concern. Able to operate under extreme hot and cold temperatures, self-lubricating bearings have a high load capacity and can be used with rotational, oscillatory, and axial sliding motions. Types of self-lubricating bearings include a plastic bearing, which features lubricant molded into the bearing. A sintered metal bearing, which has porous walls that draw oil in via capillary action, is also a type of self-lubricating bearing. Other self-lubricating bearing types include oilite bearings.

Reliable Bronze offers their R-Lube self lubricating powdered metal bearings. Self lubricating P/M bearings are made by blending powders and shaping the mixture to a required size. The bearing is oil impregnated for lubrication or corrosive resistance. Typical temperature range is from 10º F to 220º F. Reliable Bronze also offers an R-Lube sleeve bearing maintenance kit. Thrust bearings are also available.
