GRAPHALLOY® Self-Lubricating Metric Cam Followers

Graphite Metallizing Corporation announces GRAPHALLOY® self-lubricating metric dimension cam followers. These metric cam followers are available in a variety of sizes suitable for a wide range of applications.

GRAPHALLOY metric cam followers do not contain oil or grease to harden, burn up, contaminate or wash away. They are designed to handle moderate loads and speeds of up to 100 RPM. They provide reliable performance in temperatures up to 750°F (400°C).

Typical applications include bakery and industrial ovens, steel mill processing lines, glass plants, conveyors, kilns and stokers. GRAPHALLOY cam followers also perform in low temperature environments of -100° F (-75°C ) and in wet or submerged applications.

GRAPHALLOY, a graphite/metal alloy, is a uniform, solid, self-lubricating material. GRAPHALLOY cam followers will not deform under load, maintain dimensional stability and provide a constant low coefficient of friction for improved wear. GRAPHALLOY cam followers are especially suitable in applications where lubrication or maintenance tasks are cumbersome, difficult or impossible to perform.
