Q&A Can Composites Replace Bronze Plain Bearings?
If you’re a regular reader of Tech Talk, it will be no surprise that we’re big fans of composite...
The oil and gas industry has high demands for polymer bearings. Extreme temperatures and high loads, near-constant use, plus the increasing scrutiny of the industry’s impact on the environment are all top challenges.
TriStar’s polymer bearing materials have been specifically engineered for oil & gas applications. One such material is Rulon® 945. Boasting exceptional impact stability, plus heat and chemical resistance, 945 is an ideal fit for extreme applications such as fracking.
At TriStar, we carry a range of off-the-shelf components specifically engineered for energy applications, but we can also collaborate on a custom design when standard just won’t do.
