Vesconite solves the wear problem in this dry, dirty application without lubrication where the wear life of the
traditional phosphor bronze is short.
Two Vesconite bushes were fitted, as follows: 58 mm (2.3") outside diameter by 45 mm (1.8") inside diameter by
55 mm (2.2") long and 65 mm (2.5") outside diameter by 50 mm (2") inside diameter by 60 mm (2.4") long.
The results were a major improvement upon the materials used previously.
Advantages of Vesconite Bushes
- Lower cost
- Lower shaft wear
- Longer life
- Easy to machine to required size where shaft or housing have been worn. This saves rebuilding the shafts or
repairing the housing.
