Graphite Metallizing offers stainless-steel pillow blocks fitted with self-lubricating Graphalloy bushings that resist attack from water and water-soluble chemicals and are corrosion resistant.

Graphalloy stainless-steel pillow blocks are a key component of submerged physical therapy and conditioning equipment used by professional sports teams and college athletic departments.

The ability of Graphalloy bearings to provide trouble-free underwater operation without any lubrication has been a key factor in the success of this type of equipment, including underwater treadmills.

Graphalloy is a graphite-metal alloy that has exceptional chemical, mechanical and tribological properties that provide a constant, low coefficient of friction, said the company.

As a result, Graphalloy will work where traditional bearing materials often fail.

In addition to being self-lubricating, Graphalloy withstands high-temperatures up to 1000F, performs well under cryogenic conditions, can survive dry running pumps and maintains its integrity even when submerged in hostile liquids such as acids, alkalis, hydrocarbons, black liquor and liquid gases.

Graphalloy wear components improve reliability under conditions such as low-speed operation, frequent starts and stops and switch overs from standby to continuous running.

FDA-accepted grades are available for food applications.

Graphalloy products are available in standard designs including cylindrical bushings with or without grooves, single, double-flanged, split and metal backed bushings, as well as pillow block and flange units.

In addition, a high percentage of the products are produced to meet custom requirements.
