LNF-ACM

More info

ACM LNF material is a highly engineered composite material comprising of a non-woven fabric in an especially formulated anti-scuffing thermosetting resin which contains solid lubricants allowing the material to operate under dry, grease, oil and water lubricated conditions LNF can be supplied fully machined for new build or spares, replacing rubber and cotton stave bearings also elastomeric or nylon type shell bearings.

One of the major advantages of LNF is that it can be supplied in tube form up to 1600 mm diameter x 1200 mm long. This allows for the design of a complete bearing length system as opposed to two half length bearings (currently supplied) resulting in improved performance, ease of assembly, reduced initial costs (only one retention key required) and reduced bearing replacement maintenance costs.
