GRAPHALLOY® High Temperature Bushings Work
When Grease and Oil Do Not

Yonkers, NY (June 13, 2011) Graphite Metallizing Corporation announces additional sizes of the GRAPHALLOY® 453 Family of Self-Lubricating Bushings. These bushings are for severe industrial applications where temperatures reach 750̊F (400̊C) or higher. GRAPHALLOY® , a graphite/metal alloy, bushings are designed to operate without lubrication.

The 453 Bushings have proven to be successful in a variety of high temperature applications including bakery ovens, heat treat ovens, furnaces, conveyors, overhead paint lines, glass lehrs, louvers, dampers, valves as well as other environments where oil and grease cannot be used. Applications can experience improved performance through the use of GRAPHALLOY® materials.

Among their many advantages, GRAPHALLOY® bushings operate at longer intervals without the need for maintenance, which reduces costly downtime. They are an excellent choice for applications where service and maintenance tasks are cumbersome or difficult to perform. Additional benefits of GRAPHALLOY® include a low coefficient of friction and dimensional stability. The 453 Bushings, like all GRAPHALLOY® products, do not soften at high temperatures or extrude under load. Installations of these bushings have operated for more than 10 years without maintenance.

GRAPHALLOY® 453 Bushings are a proven solution for the most challenging plant maintenance and new equipment design.
