MicroPoly Lubricants :: Solid Profiles

By: Phymet  09-12-2011

MicroPoly Lubricants are solid, and can be processed into a variety of shapes with various polymer processing techniques.

Typical Applications for MicroPoly Solid Profiles:

Standard MicroPoly Solid Profiles

Nominal Diameter Cross-section   Nominal Size Cross-section
3.3" round   3/4" square
2.35" round   1/8" square
1" round   1.25" x 2"—6" square
3/4" round   1" x 2" rectangle
5/8" round   1 11/16" x 3/4" rectangle
1/2" round   3/4" x 1 3/4" rectangle
5/16" round   0.061” x 2.6" rectangle
1/4" round   0.18" x 3.0" rectangle
20 mm round   1/2" x 4" rectangle
13 mm round   1" x 4" rectangle
9 mm round   1/2" top, 1/2" high, 3/4" base trapezoid
5 mm round      

Profiles are available in a variety of lengths. Minimum order quantities may apply.

These profiles are available in MicroPoly formulas: MPI-0779, MPI-0800, MPF-0696

MicroPoly solid profiles can be custom-made for specific lubrication applications. Some examples shown below are profiles that were extruded and cut to length; others were machined to customer specifications; and some were punched from MicroPoly sheets. Many of the applications have replaced felt based lubricators. MicroPoly eliminates the need for re-oiling and spillage that can occur with conventional lubrication systems.

Our Engineering Staff can work with you to design specific profiles to meet your lubrication needs.

Typical Applications for MicroPoly Custom Profiles:

  • Ball bushings
  • Ball screws
  • Clutch bearing lubrication
  • Gear lubrication
  • Linear bearings
  • MicroPoly washers

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 :: 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.


MicroPoly Lubricants :: MicroPoly® Filled Bearings

As you can see in the following photos, the MicroPoly lubricant simply fills the spaces between the rolling elements and the cage. Filling bearings with MicroPoly lubricants does not alter the dimensional tolerances of the bearing in any way. Reducing the incursion of debris into the bearing can significantly extend the bearing's life. There is no need for additional lubrication during the life of a MicroPoly filled bearing.
