Standard Block Bushings for Textile Industry

GRAPHALLOY square or block bushings are used primarily in the textile finishing industry in dye and bleach ranges, wash boxes, and dye jigs to replace cast-iron, plastic or stainless steel block bushings. The square OD makes it easy to hold the bushing in a simple fixture.

GRAPHALLOY bushings excel in most solutions in submerged applications where oils cannot be tolerated. The GRAPHALLOY bushing is a solid lubricant and will not be squeezed out or washed away. GRAPHALLOY out performs plastics and metals, particularly in hot or run-dry applications.

Maintenance free Operations in Textile Applications:
Successful operation for 5 to 10 years and more in these applications:
  • Dying
  • Sanforizing
  • Bleaching
  • Washing
  • Mercerizing
  • Other submerged applicat
Reduced Maintenance Costs:
  • Long Service Life
  • Eliminates shaft scoring Does not collect lint
  • Non-Galling, will not seize
  • Elimination of routine lubrication
  • Outperforms: Plastics, Cast Iron, Steel,and traditional ball & roller bearings
  • Reduces downtime
