The Graphalloy grades are suitable for use in bearing and bushings that require no lead contamination. Pump applications include deep-well and potable water pumps.
The no-lead bronze formula has also been accepted by the FDA as suitable for many food grade applications. Graphalloy bushings and bearings are non-galling and are dimensionally stable when submerged, under load, or experiencing wide temperature swings, from cryogenic to 1000oF. The bushings and bearings are self-lubricating and are suitable for applications where maintenance operations are infrequent.
