Lubrication

Felt is an ideal material for providing an oil lubricating reservoir on a rotating shaft or sliding joint. The specification and construction of the reservoir material will depend upon the customer’s performance requirements. Felters has been satisfying these demands for over a century. In certain applications, the lubricant can be engineered into the fiber technology with the use of low slip and self lubricating materials such as PTFE or Silicon. The company has extensive experience in both the traditional felt lubrication reservoir use and the lamination or needling of fiber solutions to satisfy surface lubrication challenges.

Lubricating Materials:

  • Oil reservoirs
  • Sliding couplings
  • Wicks
  • Steam glands
  • Self lubricating bearings
