This self-lubricating material is approved for potable water use

This company’s Hilube self-lubricating bearing material has recently been NSF/ANSI approved for potable water applications. Used for bushings in pumps, dam gates, valves and aerators, this material allows for lower friction than rubber materials even when running dry at startup. Hilube materials require no greasing and have no water swell, allowing them to achieve close-running clearances. Many stock shapes are available and extra-large bushings (greater than one meter) can be specially made. — VescoPlastics Sales, Pty Ltd., Johannesburg, South Africa
