Yonkers, NY (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
Graphite Metallizing Corporation, manufacturer of GRAPHALLOY® bearings and bushings, will be exhibiting at the 28th Annual Pump Users Symposium. This symposium will run from Monday, September 24 through Thursday, September 27 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX.
Engineers from Graphite Metallizing will be available to discuss the success of GRAPHALLOY®, a graphite/metal alloy, in difficult pump applications. GRAPHALLOY® self-lubricating wear parts keep pumps from seizing during dry-run, low-flow, start-up, slow roll and shutdown. These are conditions that cause metal to metal pumps or plastic wear parts to fail, sometimes catastrophically.
GRAPHALLOY® wear rings and bushings operate at longer intervals without the need for replacements or maintenance which helps reduce downtime and maintenance expenses. In addition, GRAPHALLOY® operates successfully in temperatures from -400°F to +1000°F (-240°C to 535°C).
If you have an application where service and maintenance tasks are cumbersome or difficult to perform, speak with a GRAPHALLOY® representative at Booth #1715. Learn why GRAPHALLOY® is a proven solution for even the most challenging plant maintenance and new equipment design applications.
More About GRAPHALLOY® and Graphite Metallizing Corporation
Used in the manufacture of bushings, bearings and other components for machinery and process equipment, GRAPHALLOY® materials are self-lubricating, impervious to temperature extremes from -400°F to +750°F (-240°C to 400°C) and thrive in harsh environments where other bearings fail. Special grades provide reliable service up to 1000°F (535°C) and higher in non-oxidizing atmospheres.
GRAPHALLOY® is a unique self-lubricating bearing material that offers superior performance in hundreds of mechanical and electrical applications. These standard and custom designed products provide lifetime cost savings and significant operating advantages over conventional bushings and bearings.

GRAPHALLOY® can be the solution to the toughest bearing, bushing, thrust washer, cam follower, or pillow block bearing design problem. It is available in over 100 grades with specific properties that meet a wide range of engineering solutions and specifications. FDA accepted grades of GRAPHALLOY® are available for food contact equipment. NSF® International certified two grades of GRAPHALLOY® material for use in municipal well pumps and water treatment plant applications.
In some applications, GRAPHALLOY® bearings have operated for up to 20 years without maintenance. Standard designs are available but most GRAPHALLOY® products are custom designed to the unique requirements of the specific application. Graphite Metallizing Corporation is ISO certified and has produced GRAPHALLOY® since 1913.
