Thrust bearings have been developed for high load, low speed applications and are made of rotational cast high-strength bronze using a specially formed graphite plug as lubricant.
Metal self – lubricating bearings metal – to – metal contact
Taking high performance graphite gasket technology as an example, it uses the choice of flexible graphite copper gasket. When the seal is tightened, the gasket contacts (also known as metal to metal contact), and the sealing effect comes from the final compaction of the seal.
Metal-to-metal contact enables a rigid mechanical contact independent of the graphite seal, thereby breaking through the limitations of general mechanical assembly and protecting the seal ring. The elastic recovery capability of the graphite seal will be fully utilized for sealing, and this sealing mechanism also enables the sealing ring to be protected in case of over-tightening. In extreme pressure and temperature applications, this design also prevents failure of the graphite section of the gasket (the sealing section) under transient excessive loads.
