    Rulon Plane Bearings | High Temp - Self Lubricating

Rulon bearings outperform metal materials, and are ideal for non-lubricated, high-load applications in punishing environments.  Rulon bearings are heavy-duty, rust-resistant, long-wearing, and cost-efficient.  

When your application calls for Rulon  – you should call TriStar. With the largest US inventory and multiple distribution centers, we have what you need, when you need it.  Our Rulon Bearing Selector Guide, will help you match the right composite bearing material to the job.

Rulon Plane Bearing Benefits

Self-lubricating design

Provides maintenance-free operation and eliminates the need for costly and messy greasing systems.

Low coefficient of friction

Reduces wear and extends operating life and increases the efficiency of the equipment

Temperature resistant

Operates flawlessly in temperatures ranging from cryogenic levels to a high of 550°F (288°C)

Dimensionally stable in fluids (water and corrosive liquids)

Absorption rates are negligible, providing near zero swell

Chemically resistant

Compatible with a wide range of lubricants and media.

Flexible material design

Suitable for press fit, freeze fit, epoxy bonding, as well as conventional mechanical retention.

Low weight

Accommodates lightweight construction.
