Feroform F

1. Structure

Resistant to high temperatures phenolic resin with aramid fibres.

2. Characteristics

⦁ maintenance free bearing material with high load resistance and dark-olive colour,

⦁ asbestos free,

⦁ specially designed for work in high temperatures (up to 200°C),

⦁ low wear and good bearing properties even in high temperatures,

⦁ lubrication grooves improve bearing performance I n lubricated applications,

⦁ resistant to abrasion and chemical corrosion,

⦁ has minimum thermal expansion, absorbs vibrations and is resistant to impact loads,

⦁ manufactured in casting and press moulding technology optimum for many different shapes,

⦁ also available in wide range of semi-products,

⦁ available additives:

1 – oil impregnation, improves run-off, reduces coefficient of friction,
7 – thermal stabilisation, for better performance in high temperatures,
8 – additional MoS2 in order to provide better run-off in high erosion environment for example. F36.71 – F36 material thermally stabilized and impregnated with oil,

3. Applications

⦁ water turbines, conveyors and worm gears, breweries, chemical, food and beverage industry, paper and txtile industry, earthmoving machines, shipyards, pumps, water turbines seals, filtration systems, water desalination and conditioning systems, etc.

5. Technical data

6. Assembly tips

The housing should have a fit-in phase machined.
The bushes should be assembled with constant pressure without bush torsion.
