Manufactured to SAE 840 specification, each bearing contains 25% oil by volume. Spyraflo only uses the highest quality sintered bronze material instead of blended bronze which contains iron. These bearings offer an economic solution for applications requiring low to moderate loads and speeds with zero maintenance.

The spherical bronze bearing acts as an oil reservoir. Rotation of the shaft under load creates a hydrodynamic action where oil is drawn to the surface, creating a film of lubricant between the bearing and shaft. Bronze bearings are ideal for paper handling applications where the bearings allow static electricity to dissipate from the shaft through the bearing to the machine frame.
