Standard Oilite(tm) Material is made from Oil impregnated sintered bronze.
The chemical composition for standard Oilite material is within the following:
Iron: 1% Max
Carbon: 3% Max
Max. Other Elements. 2%
Open Porosity Minimum: 20-27%
Minimum Oil Content: 18-24%
Minimum Radial Crushing Strength K: 120-180 N/mm2
Nominal Density: 6-7g/cc
Maximum static load: 35-65 N/mm2
Maximum dynamic load: 10-18 N/mm2
Maximum velocity: 5-6 m/s
Maximum PV factor*: 1.8
*PV factor = Pressure (N/mm2) x bearing surface velocity (m/s).
Pressure is calculated as load (N) / Projected area (internal diameter x Length) (mm)
