Why Are They Popular For Industrial Use?
Hardened steel flanged bushings are a popular choice for any professional, home or commercial that has a high-load, heavy duty rotating crane. These types of bushings are also ideal for other kinds of machinery as well, such as oil and gas compressors, and even some kind of industrial floor fan. The reason why hardened steel flanged bushings have become so popular is due to their high strength and stability.
There are several different varieties of flanged bushings that can be made from steel, including polycarbonate, stainless steel, and brass. Each of these varieties is constructed differently and has a unique combination of qualities that make it a top quality product.
Polycarbonate is made from a plastic polymer that is fused to iron to form the metal. This type of flanged bush is usually made from a plastic resin and is very strong. It also has a smooth finish that resists scratches and bumps that would damage other kinds of flanged bushings. However, this plastic does not offer much in the way of customization, which makes it a poor choice for a shop or factory that has a variety of products on order.
Stainless steel has a very shiny surface and is perfect for both industrial purposes as well as the home market. The nice matte finish on stainless steel flanged bushings allow the machine to be painted to match any decor or color scheme. However, the high resistance to impact and heat is what makes it popular with most professionals. Other benefits include high heat resistance and a non-corrosive finish that are non-corrosive and rust proof as well.
Brass is a bit more expensive than the other two types, but its durability is what makes it an excellent choice. It is constructed from brass alloys and is almost impossible to damage. Since it is constructed from metal alloys, it also has the added benefit of being corrosion resistant, meaning it will not corrode easily. However, it is also more expensive than the other two. Brass is also commonly used as the material in watches and wristwatches, which make it ideal for both high-end consumers and those who have a large budget.
While steel flanged bushings are an excellent choice for industrial equipment, they are also a good option for home use, especially in the industrial setting. It offers more strength and stability and is more customizable than other types of flanged bushings.
