New Cobra range of solid lubricants at Drives & Controls (D340)

29 March 2016

At the Drives & Controls exhibition, Carter Manufacturing will be showcasing its new range of Cobra Solid Lubricants for ball and roller bearings.

Visitors to the Carter stand will also have the opportunity to enter a free prize draw for an Apple iPad.

Continuing its theme of “Revolutionary Ideas in Motion”, the interactive Carter stand (D340) will display its latest innovative solutions to the world’s harshest environments for bearings in applications such as vacuum & cryogenics, nuclear, pharmaceuticals, optical, aerospace & defence, and oil & gas. These solutions include the Silverthin range of thin section bearings; the Carter range of needle bearing cam followers; Unasis high temperature bearings; Unasis hybrid and fully ceramic bearings; Unasis split thin section bearings; and IBC super precision bearings.

Cobra Solid Lubricant is a graphite-based solid lubricant that is injected into a clean bearing and then thermally cured to harden within nearly 100 percent of the space between the inner and outer races. It is specifically designed for ball and roller bearings and completely encapsulates the balls or rollers along with the cage. When the bearing rotates, the graphite deposits a thin film of graphite on every contact surface, providing a low coefficient of friction over the races. This is particularly effective in high temperature applications, since no lubrication will purge from the bearing, which ensures a longer and more effective bearing life.

To cater for a broad range of applications, Cobra solid lubricant bearings are available in high temperature ranges at a maximum temperature of 121.11°C, 232.22°C and 348.89°C. Carter offers a variety of models such as:

• Standard – for applications in idler, converting, packaging, radiation and food applications.
• High Speed – for a quieter and smoother operation at high speeds.
• Super High Speed – utilising proprietary UTA Nanotechnology to achieve the highest speeds with the quietest and smoothest performance.
• Vacuum – for applications where minimal outgassing is required.

If you have an application that requires specialty bearings or would like to learn more about the latest advancements in bearing technology, visit stand D340 Drives & Controls 2016.
