Metcar bearings are designed for use at temperatures from 350 to 1000°F (149 to 538°C) in oxidizing atmospheres and from 350 to 6000°F (149 to 3316°C) in nonoxidizing atmospheres. The graphite in the carbon-graphite bearings provides the self-lubricating properties. They are dimensionally stable and are not subject to melting, softening or deformation. Applications include continuous dryers, high temperature conveyors, kiln cars, high temperature ventilation dampers, continuous bakery ovens, screw conveyors, valves and paint dryers. Several grades have received FDA approval for use in contact with foods and pharmaceuticals.
