Rolled bronze bearing housing
Bimetal-bearing is a bimetal bearing, wrapped of steel sheets with a layer of lead bronze.
Material: Copper plated steel backing, lead bronze layer (CuPb10Sn10) The standard sizes are fitted with lubrication indents on the running surface. For standard bimetal bearings is normally the steel backed copper plated to improve the corrosion resistance. The layer of lead bronze makes it possible to use these bearings with relative long lubrication intervals.
Bimetal bushing can be manufactured with a thicker lead bronze layer for applications where the bearing has to be machined after mounting. The material of the layer can be fitted to the special needs for the application.
