Wear comparison of iglidur® L500 and sintered bearing

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

Rotating wear against cf53

P = 0,25 MPa

T = 23°C

Duration = 24 h

Plain bearing: iglidur® L500, sintered bearing


 

Wear comparison of iglidur® L500 and sintered bearing

Result of wear test - sintered bearing against iglidur® L500
x-axis: Gliding speed [m/s]
y-axis: Coefficient of wear [µm/km]
Orange: iglidur® L500
Grey: Sintered bearing

 

Result:

The lowest coefficient of wear was achieved by the iglidur® L500 plain bearing in all tested
gliding speeds.
