PTFE and PEEK bearings Details

    HIGH-PERFORMANCE POLYMERS increase bearing capacity and reliability as direct replacements for babbitt components or in new designs for your most demanding applications.Surface properties and the mechanical strength of engineered polymers allow bearings to operate with thinner films than traditional babbitt bearing materials,providing high load capacity,up to 10 MPa (1500 psi),reduced power loss,up to 30% savings,operation with low-viscosity lubricants.
     Polymer materials have higher operating temperature capabilities–up to 250°C and retain their mechanical properties at higher temperatures than babbitt,allowing exceptional performance at elevated temperatures.
     Engineered polymers are resistant to most chemicals,including hydrogen sulfide and ammonia, preventing bearing damage associated with chemical attack by the working fluid.
     Polymers,in a similar way to babbitt,will embed dirt that enters the fluid film,preventing damage to the journal or collar.The high electrical resistance of polymers is utilized in motor and generator applications to prevent damaging currents from passing through the bearing and housing to ground.This characteristic eliminates the need for a separate insulating layer.
     Advanced materials are compatible with even the most challenging lubricants and process fluids,such as mineral/synthetic oils–VG5 to VG680,Water/seawater,Water-glycol,Freon,Toluene,Amine,Crude oil Hydrocarbon condensates,Methane,Propane,Butane,Hexane.

Our main polymer are PEEK bearings and PTFE bearings.

Compared with metal bearings, do PTFE and PEEK bearings have lighter weight and higher strength?

Compared with traditional metal bearings, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and polyetheretherketone (PEEK) bearings are lighter in weight and higher in strength. These characteristics allow them to reduce the load on the bearing itself, thereby increasing work efficiency.
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a very popular bearing material. It has low density, low friction coefficient and excellent wear resistance. Compared with metal bearings, PTFE bearings are lighter and can reduce the self-weight load of the bearing. This is especially important for equipment that needs to rotate at high speed or run for a long time. In addition, PTFE is a self-lubricating material and does not require external lubrication, which also reduces the cost and workload of maintenance and upkeep.
Polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is another high-strength polymer used in bearings. PEEK has extremely high strength and stiffness, maintaining its performance over a wide temperature range. The high strength of PEEK bearings means they can withstand greater loads and stresses than metal bearings. This makes PEEK bearings an ideal choice, especially in high temperature, high speed and high load environments. In addition, PEEK also has excellent chemical resistance and can resist the erosion of many chemical substances, extending the service life of the bearing.
Reducing the load on the bearing itself plays an important role in improving work efficiency. When the load on the bearings is reduced, friction and wear are also reduced. This not only extends the service life of the bearings, but also reduces energy consumption and maintenance costs. In addition, the operating efficiency of the equipment will be improved due to the reduced load on the bearings themselves. For example, the use of PTFE or PEEK bearings in automobile engines can reduce friction losses and improve fuel efficiency. Likewise, bearings using these advanced materials in industrial production can reduce mechanical energy loss and improve equipment production efficiency.
Compared with metal bearings, PTFE and PEEK bearings are lighter in weight and higher in strength. These characteristics reduce the load on the bearing itself and improve work efficiency. With the advancement of science and technology, research on bearing materials will continue. It is believed that bearing materials in the future will be lighter and stronger, further improving work efficiency and promoting the development of various industries.

Can the good self-lubricating properties of PTFE and PEEK bearings effectively reduce friction and wear?

Both PTFE and PEEK are materials with good self-lubricating properties and are suitable for manufacturing bearings. The advantages of PTFE and PEEK bearings will be elaborated on from two aspects below.
PTFE and PEEK bearings have good self-lubricating properties. PTFE is the abbreviation of polytetrafluoroethylene. It is a very smooth material with a low coefficient of friction and excellent wear resistance, which can effectively reduce friction and wear. PEEK, the abbreviation of polyetheretherketone, is also a self-lubricating material with excellent properties similar to PTFE. This means that PTFE and PEEK bearings do not require additional lubricants during use and can work normally under dry friction, reducing the pollution of the lubricant to the environment.
PTFE and PEEK bearings can also effectively reduce energy losses. Because PTFE and PEEK have low friction coefficients, they also produce less energy loss when rubbing. Compared with traditional metal bearings, the use of PTFE and PEEK bearings can significantly reduce the loss of mechanical energy and improve mechanical transmission efficiency. Especially in high-speed rotating systems, the excellent performance of PTFE and PEEK bearings is more obvious, which can reduce the energy loss of the mechanical system and improve the overall efficiency.
Using PTFE and PEEK bearings can also extend the service life of the bearings. Because PTFE and PEEK have excellent wear resistance and corrosion resistance, they work well in high temperatures, high pressures and harsh environments. Compared with traditional metal materials, PTFE and PEEK bearings are less susceptible to wear and corrosion and can maintain their performance longer, extending the service life of the entire bearing. In addition, PTFE and PEEK materials also have excellent corrosion resistance and can maintain good working condition even in harsh chemical environments.
PTFE and PEEK bearings have good self-lubricating properties, which can effectively reduce friction and wear, reduce energy loss, and extend service life. These advantages make PTFE and PEEK bearings widely used in various industrial fields, improving the performance and stability of mechanical systems and reducing operation and maintenance costs.
