SiC-D bearings can withstand accidental dry run for extended periods. Unique materials and manufacturing techniques of our specially treated SiC-D bearings provide a coefficient of friction 1/4 that of SiC.
The very low coefficient of friction of our SiC-D bearings results in much less heat being generated in upset or dry running conditions. SiC-D bearings are more forgiving of dry running conditions frequently encountered at start up, during upset conditions or in batch services.
Extremely hard surfaces minimize wear and prolong service life; resistance to chemicals is maintained for extended bearing life.
