FAQS

QWhat is the difference between ball and sleeve bearings?

AGenerally, sleeve bearings are quieter. Ball bearings can stand more axial thrust. (belt too tight)

QIs journal bearing the same as sleeve bearing?

ASleeve / plain/ journal bearing, all are same. These are used to constrain, guide or reduce friction in rotary or linear applications. They function via a sliding action instead of the rolling action used by ball, roller, and needle bearings.

QWhat is a bronze sleeve bearing?

ASleeve bearings can be made of compressed powdered metal, such as bronze or copper. Because of the material from which they are made, the metal is microscopically porous. When they are oiled on the outside, the oil will be drawn up through the pores to lubricate the inner cylinder.

QWhy use bronze bushings?

ABronze is a versatile and commonly used material for bushings because it comes in many alloys and compositions. Bronze sleeve bushings or bronze bearings are hard and strong, as opposed to brass bushings, which are softer and more easily deform. Thus, bronze bushings have longer lifespans than brass bushing sleeves.

QWhat is the difference between sleeve bearing and journal bearing?

AThe journal refers to that portion of the shaft specially machined for bearing duty. The sleeve refers to the surrounding outer shell with its supporting hub portion. Often the sleeve is a replaceable insert in the hub of a material designed and sometimes machined to retard wear of the journal portion of the rotating shaft.
