INDRON® bearings with metal-based coating are an ideal alternative to oil – lubricated metal bearings for guide vanes, whose creative coating design has overcome the restriction of dry – ice installation for polymer bearings and eliminated the obvious clearance changes caused by the water swelling of polymer and thermal expansion.
- Best fit clearances are maintained thanks to tiny water swelling and dimensional changes.
- Maximum load capacity (25% strain) up to 100Mpa.
- Effective protection of the shaft neck and reliable performances due to full coverage of the shaft neck.
- Avoids the inconvenience that a typical polymer bearing has to be refrigerated by dry ice during installation.
