FranBerLube™ is Francis Birkett’s own self-lubricating bearing product, offering exceptional performance and reliability in the harshest of environments.
Traditional bearings require additional grease or oil to reduce friction and ensure smooth operation. As external lubricants only remain effective for a period of time, they require constant monitoring and persistent application. Without regular maintenance, the bearing will seize and break down.
FranBerLube™ products incorporate pockets of graphite or PTFE lubricant within the bearing walls. An integral part of the bearing material, this lubrication constantly interacts with the wearing surface, making FranBerLube™ self-lubricating and maintenance-free for the life of the bearing. We offer a bespoke response to your bearing needs, with solutions tailored to your individual requirements, whether by size, material or application. If you provide us with the sizes require and the use we will provide you with the recommendations for material, lubrication, and lubrication design.
