MicroPoly Lubricants :: MicroPoly® Filled Bearings

Keywords: Solid Lubricant

PhyMet's processing creates a solid lubricant with an oil-filled porous structure. The MicroPoly fills the space between the rolling elements and races in a bearing, providing constant and consistent lubrication. There is no need for additional lubrication during the life of a MicroPoly filled bearing.

Because it is a solid, MicroPoly can help block debris and reduce foreign contamination of the bearing. Reducing the incursion of debris into the bearing can significantly extend the bearing's life. The solid structure of MicroPoly also improves housekeeping, as it will not drip out of the bearing and contaminate the environment.

Filling bearings with MicroPoly lubricants does not alter the dimensional tolerances of the bearing in any way. As you can see in the following photos, the MicroPoly lubricant simply fills the spaces between the rolling elements and the cage.

MicroPoly Lubricants :: Chain Lubrication System

The oil contained in the MicroPoly is transferred as the chain moves along the blocks. The applicator is available in a variety of designs, one of which is shown here. This applicator employs grooved blocks of MicroPoly to lubricate chains. The block’s profile is designed to fit into the chain profile. Mounting bracket available upon request.


MicroPoly Lubricants :: MicroPoly® Lube Arcs

This cost savings is based on purchasing fewer wheels over the life of the crane and does not include savings from the downtime involved in replacing the wheels. This patented system consists of two MicroPoly arcs and a mounting system that makes use of existing axle bolts on each side of the crane. PhyMet's revolutionary MicroPoly lube arcs dramatically reduce wear on overhead crane wheel flanges.


MicroPoly Lubricants :: Solid Profiles

MicroPoly eliminates the need for re-oiling and spillage that can occur with conventional lubrication systems. MicroPoly solid profiles can be custom-made for specific lubrication applications. Typical Applications for MicroPoly Custom Profiles. Typical Applications for MicroPoly Solid Profiles.


MicroPoly Lubricants :: Chain Lubricating Sprocket

Since the MicroPoly has a large reservoir of oil, the sprockets provide a long lasting method of chain lubrication with reduced maintenance and improved housekeeping and safety. When inserted as an idler sprocket in a chain line, oil is transferred from the MicroPoly to the chain as the sprocket rotates against the chain. Please contact PhyMet's technical staff 743-8061 for details on custom sprockets.
