Metcar is excited to announce that it’s M-161 babbitt impregnated carbon graphite and M-310 nickel impregnated carbon graphite materials will now be distributed globally by the Boulden Company.Boulden Company has been serving the pump repair industry for decades. Their objective is to support plant engineers to improve the reliability, efficiency, and safety of their machines. The combination of Boulden Company's service-minded mission and Metcar’s high-performing materials will be a valuable asset to the pump repair industry.
The M-161 and M-310 material grades are critical to the reliable operation of countless pumps in the utilities, oil & gas, and petrochemical industries. Carbon graphite is self-lubricating, so it can run dry in certain conditions without the need for grease or oil lubrication. Since there is no metallic attraction between carbon graphite and metal running surfaces, these M-161 and M-310 materials are not prone to galling or seizing, which is a known failure mode of other types of bearings.
