Offshore and marine applications constantly require new bearing developments. Extreme operating conditions and challenges like high loads, stick-slip, chemicals, edge load, dirt, corrosion, small angular movements, extreme temperatures, difficult or impossible lubrication among others are everyday challenges for Federal-Mogul DEVA. A high-end self-lubricating bearing can be used as a solution for all these demands.
DEVA has a broad range of different maintenance-free materials, enabling a custom-made bearing solution for each application, regardless of if submerged, above surface or in the splash zone.
Federal-Mogul Deva GmbH is a global leader in maintenance-free, self-lubricating bearings for the most demanding applications. Since the company’s world-first introduction of sintered bearings incorporating solid lubricants in 1936, maintenance-free, self-lubricating bearings carrying the DEVA ® trademark have helped ensure reliable, efficient operation across many industries worldwide. With world-class products tailor-made to cope with the most demanding tribological conditions – intense pressures underwater, great heat or cold, or in the exceptionally challenging environment of space travel – DEVA’s reputation has been established through consistently excellent service and performance.
deva.glide® materials consist of highly wear-resistant copper cast alloys showing sliding surfaces with evenly provided solid lubricant plugs according to the so-called "macro distribution" principle. These plugs are arranged according to the movement requirements. The high density of the bronze ensures high stability under load along with good dirt particle embedding properties into the lubricant plugs.
deva.tex ® is a self-lubricating, glass-ﬁbre reinforced composite bearing material which is produced using a special winding technology. The base material ensures high strength, while the sliding layer contains special non-abrasive
ﬁbres and solid lubricants which ensure excellent tribological properties even in damp environments or in the event of edge loads. The solid lubricants were developed to give extremely low coefﬁcients of friction and wear rates in both wet and dry-running conditions.
deva.bm® is a self-lubricating composite bearing material, comprising a seawater resistant stainless steel backing with a sliding layer of deva.metal®.
