The advantages of sintered bearings compared to other plain bearings is the storage capability of the porous material of which they are made. A reservoir of lubricant forms in these pores which under ideal conditions produces a permanent lubricating film on the sliding surface and enables the lubricant to circulate in the bearing.
For more demanding requirements, such as constant changes in direction or frequent starting from a standstill, Klüber Lubrication develops special impregnating fluids containing soap, which are held uniformly suspended in the oil. This special formula reliably prevents boundary or mixed lubrication. The result is reduced wear, particularly on start-up. As the only manufacturer of specialty lubricants, Klüber Lubrication offers these types of fluids in addition to the high-grade synthetic, pure oils for sintered bearings. Both types of lubricant have been offering proven service for decades.
