Simplicity® Linear Bearings Temperature RangeSimplicity TempRange Image

A major advantage of the self-lubricating Simplicity linear bearings is that they can be used over a very wide temperature range (-400°F / +400°F)(-240°C/+204°C).  The fact that they are “self-lubricating” allows for the elimination of external grease or oil that is often the limiting factor on a bearing’s performance.

 The thin bearing liner of Frelon® materials allows heat to dissipate through the bearing shell in high temperature applications.  The bearing material maintains its performance characteristics while keeping thermal expansion to a minimum.

The standard bearing I.D. options are designed for use in most industrial applications.  For temperatures below 0°F, the standard bearing I.D. is recommended (FL series bearings).  For extreme high temperatures, the compensated I.D. bearing (FLC series) is recommended due to the increased running clearance.

CAUTION:  It is always best to inspect actual size at extreme temperatures to ensure the proper running clearance.
