Various products in the igus range of iglidur polymer bearings are being applied to harsh conditions in the drilling risers on offshore oil and gas platforms.
Cost-effective, the iglidur G polymer plain bearings are recommended for oscillating movements and offer versatility of use through their high mechanical resistance, general robustness and dirt resistance.
Especially recommended for rotating movements, the iglidur W300 has an especially long service life, low wear, and high dirt resistance and is compatible with soft shafts.
Universally resistant against chemicals, iglidur X has low water absorption, high compressive strength, and general robustness and dirt resistance and is suitable for operating temperatures up to 250°C.
With a low friction coefficient and a wear capacity up to 5 MPa, the iglidur J dampens vibration, has low water absorption and good chemical resistance.
The igus iglidur range of polymer plain bearings available from Treotham Automation offers versatility, longevity, high temperature tolerance, low friction and strength.
