Equipment uptime is critical in heavy-duty construction, where delays can quickly escalate to millions of dollars in cost overruns. And TriStar bearings help to ensure that back-hoes, tractors, excavators and other massive earth movers run at optimum performance at all times.
Stainless steel substrates – we are the only plastics company to manufacture them. Known as TriSteel™ bearings, they are located in the gear pumps of primary earth movers, and help to maximize engine and hydraulic system performance.
How do they work?
TriSteels are built from a proprietary polymer and are sintered to a secondary bronze interlayer. This extra layer ensures that the gear pumps are continually lubricated should a liner break-thru occur. And unlike other bearings, TriSteel uses a PEEK instead of PV application, which significantly improves overall wear.
TriSteel bearings excel in construction:
We can help you match the right material to your application by evaluating the speed, load, temperature and lubrication of your hardware. And we’ll do it all at a competitive value.
