Metcar materials are used throughout the industry in a variety of capacities, including situations where there is extreme temperature variation, little to no lubrication, or chemical environments. Our high-performance materials have the ability to run in low viscosity fluid where traditional oil and grease cannot be used, making them ideal for use in fluid management applications, as well as high temperature environments.

Common high temperature applications include:

  • High Temperature Ovens
  • High Temperature Conveyors
  • High Temperature Glass Handling
  • Fiberglass Handling Systems
  • High Temperature Louvers & Dampers
  • Stokers
  • Electrostatic Precipitators
  • Glass Tempering Furnaces
  • Carpet Manufacturing
  • Paint Line Conveyors

Common fluid management applications include:

  • Pumping/handling of caustics/acids
  • Water Pumps
  • Chemical Pumps
  • Hot Oil Pumps
  • Turbochargers
  • Desalination Systems
  • Refrigeration Equipment
  • Cryogenics Equipment
  • Steam Compressors
  • Gas Compressors
  • Rotary Unions
  • High Temperature Valves
  • Textile Dying & Bleaching Equipment

Board dryer applications include:

Carbon graphite bearings are ideal for operating in the high temperature, steam environment in the continuous dryers used in the building products industry. These board dryers run continuously for years before requiring bearing change out made more simple using Metcar’s quick change hardware.
