Many factors affect
the overall performance of FIBERGLIDE® bearings. Those of primary concern
include applied load, surface velocity, operating mode, surface temperature,
mating surface finish and running clearance.
values referred to in this section are based on dry operation. When
running in a fluid atmosphere, FIBERGLIDE® bearings may have limitations.
Where application requirements exceed those shown, consult Transport
Dynamics engineering department for specific recommendations.
bearings are designed to be used under oscillating motion, interrupted
start-stop, or axial motion. They are recommended where high loads are
combined with low surface speeds.
