Permitted p x v values

For iglide® T220 plastic bushings with 0.039 inches wall thickness in dry operation against a steel shaft, at 68° F, installed in a steel housing.

iglide® T220 is a special material for application in the tobacco processing industry. It fulfills the demands of the tobacco industry (engineering database). The material is free of undesirable and prohibited ingredients, as required by well-known manufacturers of tobacco products.

Compressive Strength

iglide® T220 plastic bushings can be stressed up to the permitted limit of 6,527 psi. However, the level of the load has an influence on the bushing's wear. The permitted load is limited by higher temperatures.


Maximum surface speed

m/s Rotating Oscillating Linear
Constant 78 59 196
Short-term 196 137 393

Permitted surface speeds

The maximum speed of iglide® T220 plastic bushings in continuous rotation is 78 fpm. The frictional heat generated define the permissible speeds. From this it follows that in intermittent service or in linear movements, higher speeds can be attained.

Temperatures

The bushings made of iglide® T220 can be used continuously up to 212° F. Temperatures up to 320° F are permitted on the short term. The elasticity of the bushing is dependent on the temperature. Even 140° F leads to a clear increase in elasticity. A mechanical fastening should be considered from 140° F upward.

Please contact us if there is any query about the bushing and their application.

Friction and wear

As the requirements of the tobacco processing industry was strictly complied with in the development of the material, the application of friction-minimizing additives was limited. Hence the coefficients of friction and wear of the iglide® T220 plastic bushings are clearly behind those of the best iglide® bmaterials.

Shaft materials

The graph show the results of tests for the wear resistance with different shaft materials. By the observance of the recommendations, the service life of a bushing application can be distinctly improved. The graph shows that with increase in load, the bearing responds with stronger increase in wear. Therefore care should be taken to maintain the loads under 725 psi through adequate dimensioning of the bushing.

Installation tolerances

iglide® T220 plastic bushings are standard bushings for shafts with h-tolerance (recommended minimum h9).

After the installation in a housing bore with H7 tolerance, the inner diameter of the bushing automatically adjusts to the E10 tolerance.

Surface resistance > 1010 Ω

Chemical resistance

iglide® T220 plastic bushings are resistant to highly weak alkalis and very weak acids. The humidity absorption of iglide® T220 plastic bushings amounts to about 0,2% in standard climatic conditions. The saturation limit in water is 0,7%. These values are so low that a moisture expansion need to be considered only in extreme cases.

Radioactive rays

iglide® T220 plastic bushings are radiation resistant up to a radioactive intensity of 3 x 10² Gy.

UV-resistant

iglide® T220 plastic bushings are not resistant to the influence of UV rays.

Vacuum

The use in vacuum is possible only conditionally. Only dry bushings made of iglide® T220 should be tested in vacuum.

Electrical properties

Plastic bushings made of iglide® T220 are electrically insulating.

Delivery program

The iglide® T220 plastic bushings are manufactured according to order specifications.
