ZX-100K as a replacement for bronze
Description of the application
The spherical plain bearing is used in systems in the steel industry and is exposed to high loads and high temperatures. The bearing is available in various diameters from 140mm to 180mm. The component is provided with a threaded hole in the center for fastening.
The previous material had to be lubricated with oil, which led to enormous costs.
By switching to ZX-100K, lubrication can now be dispensed with. The warehouse is now water-cooled.
The elimination of oil lubrication resulted in a cost advantage of over € 35,000 a year.
