SKF wrapped bronze bushings are available in metric sizes as straight bushings. They are wrapped from strips and calibrated. These bushings are an excellent solution for dirty environments where high levels of contamination make relubrication necessary. They are resistant to shock loads and vibrations at slow speeds.
The diamond-shaped lubrication pockets in the sliding surface need to be filled initially with grease. A good quality lubricant reduces friction and wear by separating a bronze bushing from its shaft. To protect the bushing and lubricant in highly contaminated environments, SKF recommends using seals.
