Glacier & Oilite® Bearings

Oilite Sintered Bronze Bushes Power Transmission Engineering in Nottingham offer a comprehensive range of Oilite® (oil impregnated sintered bronze) bushes and Glacier type Wrapped bushes. Both Oilite® and Wrapped bushes are available in both metric and imperial sizes.

Oilite® Sintered Bronze Bushes

Oilite® Sintered Bronze Bushes offer superior wear resistance and longevity as well as a smooth action and self dampening features during application. The Sintering Process allows the bronze alloy to become self-lubricated which allows the metal to hold a closer tolerance.

Oilite® products:

  • Oilite® Plain Bushes
  • Oilite® Flanged Bushes
  • Oilite® Thrust washers
  • Solid Oilite® bars
  • Cored Oilite® bars
  • Oilite® plates

U-Type Glacier BearingsU-Type PTFE-based metal-polymer bearings / bushes

U-Type metal-backed, PTFE-based polymer bearing materials have a common structure, consisting of a metal backing bonded to a porous bronze sinter layer. This bronze sinter layer is impregnated and overlaid with the filled PTFE bearing lining.

The metal backing provides mechanical strength, while the bronze sinter layer provides a strong mechanical bond between the backing and the bearing lining. This construction promotes dimensional stability and improves thermal conductivity. These polymer bearing linings, being predominantly PTFE, offer exceptionally low friction.

U-Type products:

  • Plain U-Type Bushes
  • Flanged U-Type Bushes
  • U-Type Strips
  • U-Type Wahers

X-Type Glacier BearingsX-Type Thermoplastic-based metal-polymer bearings / bushes

X-type bushes have a similar structure to the PTFE-based materials, but with these products the bearing lining consists of a filled thermoplastic extruded tape. These materials are generally designed to operate with marginal lubrication. X-Type bushes are most commonly provided with a uniform pattern of indents in the bearing surface that act as grease reservoirs.

X-Type products:

  • Plain X-Type Bushes
  • X-Type Washers
  • X-Type Strips
