Shafts & Bearings: Oilite® Plain Bushes
data, price & technical pdfs:
Special Lubricants & Additives
The standard stock range of Oilite® bearings is impregnated with a mineral
oil SAE 30 viscosity; all machined Oilite® bearings and plates are supplied fully
impregnated after machining.
Oilite® conforms to ISO 2795
Oilite® metric bearings are manufactured to the tolerances set out in
ISO 2795 - Plain Bearings from Sintered Material.
Standard Oilite® - oil retaining tin bronze is the generally specified material. It gives a good balance between strength,wear resistance,conformability and durability in operation. Ideal in a wide variety of applications where self lubricating properties are required over a long period of time.
The standard inch range of Oilite® bearings is made to fit H8 housings and the majority will give H8 fitted bores.
The standard metric range of Oilite® bearings to ISO 2795 is made to G7/s7 limits of tolerance. These bearings when fitted into a rigid H7 housing, using an m5 fitting pin, will give an H7 bore, which when run on an f7 shaft will give good performance.
Note: In extreme circumstances a combination of tolerances can make insertion of the fitting pin difficult. For Advice on the recommended course of action in such cases contact our Technical Department.
