Bearings for Every Application
–Where there’s motion, there’s a bearing.
Bearings are available to suit all applications and should be properly sized to load and speed requirements. For immediate help, call us at 800-621-0237. View our Glossary of Terms on Bearings.

One type of bearing is a friction bearing. Friction bearings are sleeve bearings. They can be bronze, Babbitt, nylon, UHMW which stands for ultra high molecular weight polyethylene, glass filled Teflon. Friction bearings are used in a lot of applications, for example, using them on rotating shafts or linear motion. You would use a friction bearing because they can be used under water, friction bearings can be chemical resistant, there is limited space and depending on the material they are more economical opposed to using a ball bearing or a roller bearing.
We carry these and more:
Bronze Friction Bearings – they can be 660 bronze, aluminum bronze, manganese bronze, and oil impregnated bronze. Using the right bronze friction bearing depends on loads and speeds of the application and whether it needs lubrication.
UHMW type of Friction Bearings – These are used in an application where lubrication cannot be used. It can be used in underwater applications.
Glass Filled Teflon Friction Bearings – These would be used in the same manner as a UHMW type.
Babbitt Friction Bearings – are made of a material that can be melted to cast your own bearing yet it is hard enough to carry a heavy load. It does not shrink appreciably and can be used for large or small bearings. It can conform to the shaft because of its plasticity.
There is a bearing for every situation.
· Anti-Friction Bearings – examples of these are ball bearings, roller bearings, and needle bearings. These would be used instead of a friction bearing when higher loads and higher speeds are needed for the application.
And then of course bearings of all variations can be put into mounted units such as pillow blocks, flange and take up units…
