Highly robust solid lubricant

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Carter Manufacturing has released Cobra Solid Lubricants (CSL) for ball and roller bearings. CSL is a graphite-based solid lubricant that is injected into clean bearings and thermally cured to harden within nearly 100% of the space between the inner and outer races.

The lubricant is designed to completely encapsulate the balls or rollers along with the cage. When the bearing rotates, the graphite deposits a thin film of graphite on every contact surface, providing a low coefficient of friction over the races. This is particularly effective in high temperature applications, since no lubrication will purge from the bearing, which ensures a longer and more effective bearing life.

CSL is said to work within a temperature range of -101 to 384.44°C with no change in torque and no need for seals or shields. It is also claimed to withstand exposure to extreme heat, moderate radiation and mild acids or alkalis, steam or solvents. It is suitable for common food processing procedures as it will not dissolve or fall apart during wash-downs.
