Fluid Technology

Maintenance-free polymer plain bearings in the fluid technology industry

Resistant to chemicals and media, maintenance-free, self-lubricating

Around the world, manufacturers of hydraulic and pneumatic systems as well as HVAC facilities rely on self-lubricating components from igus. The reason for this is simple: from short linear movements to fast rotating applications, our tribologically-optimized plastics provide a high resistance to wear, abrasion, chemicals and temperature as well as freedom from maintenance.

Customer Applications:

Ball valve mounted, iglide T500 bushings

Flanged ball valve from Pister In the flanged ball valves from Pister, maintenance-free plain bearings made of chemical-­resistant iglide T500 material ensure a continuous, even rotation of the ball valve and guidance of the ball.

Piston rod pin for LEWA water pumps

LEWA ecoflow dosing diaphragm pumps Our iglide T500 plain bearings resistant to chemicals and temperature are also used in the ecoflow dosing diaphragm pumps from LEWA. Installed in the engine, they minimize wear on the piston rod pin.

B. Braun AG Infusion pumps

infusion pumps During the infusion a steady movement must be performed. For B. Braun Melsungen AG, this required a particularly good coefficient of friction for the components in order to achieve smooth movement in the smallest possible installation space.
