The features of controlled friction, good abrasion resistance, and long life mean that FEROFORM and RAILKO grades are well suited for bearings in mechanical engineering, as well as bushes, thrust washers, and sliding pads in a wide range of applications.
RAILKO NF22 engineering bearings are used in examples such as slaughtering machines, packaging equipment, escalators, and glass bottle cleaning equipment where they show long life with low wear rates which reduces operating cost.
FEROFORM T11 with its good wear resistance and dimensional stability is used in waste water processing equipment and lock gate bushes. FEROFORM PR18 is an excellent general purpose, self lubricating material providing high mechanical strength and wear resistance. With low coefficient of friction, the applications where it is used include engineering bearings for hydraulic cylinder heads and cranes. It is suitable for both dry running or for use with all common lubricants. FEROGLIDE bearings with their metal backing are used in highly loaded applications, particularly in oscillating and sliding bearings in packaging equipment and forming machines.
