Enhanced Graphite Bushings and Bearings

Why is GRAPHALLOY the best choice for a graphite bushing or graphite bearing?  

Plain graphite bearings and graphite bushings do not have the same properties as GRAPHALLOY.Graphalloy graphite metal bushing in a stainless steel housing

GRAPHALLOY, a graphite/metal alloy, is formed from molten metal, graphite and carbon; it is a uniform, solid, self-lubricating bushing material. From this material we manufacture a unique, self-lubricating bearing solution, offering superior performance in hundreds of applications. GRAPHALLOY is ideally suited for submerged and high temperature bearings and bushings - applications where oil, grease, plain carbon bearings and plastic bearings fail.Graphalloy insert bearing with Graphite metal bushing

Available in over 100 grades, GRAPHALLOY bearings may be the solution to your toughest bushing, thrust washer, cam follower, flange block, or pillow block bearing design problem. GRAPHALLOY bearings have been installed for up to 20 years without maintenance. We have many standard designs but most of our products are custom designed to the unique requirements of a specific application.

The GRAPHALLOY material combines the self-lubricating qualities of graphite with the strength and wear resistance of metal. The metal impregnation process also reduces oxidation at very high temperatures and prevents swelling.

Graphalloy bushings are commonly found in

  • Pumps
  • High temperature applications
  • Food applications
  • Submerged applications
  • And more. See a more extensive list of applications below!
