GGB Bearings

GGB Bearing Technology is now offering two new metallic bearing materials, the hydro project parts manufacturer has announced.

GGB Bearing Technology -- formerly Glacier Garlock Bearings -- said both new bearings are self-lubricating, provide high load capacities, operate in a broad range of temperatures are corrosion resistant.

The first, called the "GGB-CSM" series, are made of solid metal, while the second, "GGB-CBM", features sliding layers sintered on to metallic backings.

Both GGB-CSM and GGB-CBM bearings are manufactured using a powder metallurgy process to produce a metallic matrix with a homogeneously distributed solid lubricant, GGB Bearing Technology said.

GGB-CSM bearings are available in a range of alloys, including bronze, iron and nickel, while the GGB-CBM series is available in a range of bronze alloys, stainless steel and carbon.

GGB Bearing Technology has production facilities in the United States, Germany, France, Brazil, Slovakia and China.

The company will be exhibiting at HydroVision International 2013 in Booth No. 677. This year's HydroVision International takes place July 23-26 at Denver's Colorado Convention Center.
