• Drum Saddle Slide Bearing Plates

In a wide range of applications, PTFE slide bearings are superior to conventional expansion plates, rollers and rocker arms, accommodating expansion, contraction and other reciprocating motions of any structure that moves as a result of thermal, seismic or differential forces. For the majority of applications a slide bearing assembly consists of two pads of PTFE sliding against each other.

For very high-pressure applications, a single pad may be used to counter face a polished stainless steel plate. We manufacture slide bearings in a range of configurations, though each bearing is designed specifically to suit the application. The bearings are maintenance free as PTFE is inherently self-lubricating, while dirt particles are absorbed into the material. PTFE Slide Bearings are mostly manufactured as per specifications.
