Wear comparison of iglide® L500 and sintered bearing

Specially developed for fast continuous operation under low loads, iglide® L500, is intended for fan and electric motor applications.
 
The newly developed iglide® L500 was compared with a sintered bearing in the igus® laboratory. The aim was to determine the wear rates at various gliding speeds.
 
The comparison took place under the following test parameters:

Rotating wear against cf53

P = 0,25 MPa (36 psi)

T = 23°C (73 ºF)

Duration = 24 h

Plain bearing: iglide® L500, sintered bearing


 

Wear comparison of iglide® L500 and sintered bearing Result of wear test - sintered bearing against iglide® L500
x-axis: Gliding speed [m/s]
y-axis: Wear rate [µm/km]
Orange: iglide® L500
Grey: Sintered bearing

Result:

The lowest wear rates were achieved by the iglide® L500 plain bearing in all tested
gliding speeds.
