Boulden is excited to announce that it is now distributing Metcar’s M-161 babbitt impregnated carbon graphite and M-310 nickel impregnated carbon graphite materials. Boulden has been serving the pump repair industry for decades with a range of composite materials. Our objective is to support plant engineers to improve the reliability, efficiency, and safety of their machines. The combination of Boulden’s service-minded mission and Metcar’s high-performing materials will be a valuable asset to the pump repair industry.
Reducing Pump Failure with Carbon Graphite Materials
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.
Boulden will be stocking M-161 and M-310 for fast delivery along with Boulden’s service and technical support. M-161 and M-310 add to Boulden’s complete range of composite materials which can cover applications from cryogenic to 1700 F (900 C).
