self-lubricating bearing material
deva.metal® is a self-lubricating bearing material manufactured by advanced powder metallurgy. It is fully compacted, unlike oil-impregnated porous bronze materials that are weak by comparison.
deva.metal® is provided with an evenly distributed solid lubricant throughout its metallic matrix.
deva.metal®, which is suitable for dry running at slow sliding speeds and high loads:
- has high resistance to temperature and corrosion.
- will tolerate contamination and edge pressures.
- can be easily machined if required.
Bearing forms available in standard dimensions
Customized components are also available.
Self Aligning Bush
|Max. permitted static load (p)||N/mm²||200|
|Max. permitted dynamic load (p)||N/mm²||120|
|Max. sliding speed (U)||m/s||1,0|
|Max. pU-value at p = 100 N/mm²||N/mm² x m/s||0,5|
|Max. pU-value at U = 1 m/s||N/mm² x m/s||2|
|Friction coefficient (dep. on operating cond.en)||µ||0,08 to 0,18|
|Temperature range||°C||-200 to +750|
|Bush (inner-Ø)||C7 will be D8
|Shaft hardness||hardness > 180 HB|
|Shaft surface finish||Ra 0,2 – 0,8 µm|
The recommended method for installing bushes is freeze fitting.
Other installation tolerances are possible provided that a safe fit in the housing and the necessary running clearance are maintained.
TYPICAL INDUSTRY APPLICATIONS
Heavy Duty applications constantly require new bearing developments. DEVA's application engineers work on new bearing designs from initial inquiry to the final design. DEVA have over 70 years in experience and know exactly what the best bearing material to suit the extreme heavy duty demands.
Custom Lengths Available
Deva prouducts are manufactured to order to suit your specific application.
Metric and Imperial Sizes
Both Metric and Imperial sizes are available to achieve the design requirements.
Thyssing keep a limited range of stock here in Australia to reduce lead time for customers.
Most Deva products are self lubricating and require no lubrication.
