Benefits of Vesconite for the Hydroelectric Industry
Traditional metal or rubber bearings will not function effectively without lubrication, but this is not the case for Vesconite bearings. Water is considered an excellent lubricant for Vesconite Hilube bearings, and the environment becomes cleaner without the use of lubricating oil.
Vesconite Hilube is an ideal bearing material for the stringent requirements and longevity of the hydroelectric industry. Vesconite Hilube is a self-lubricating material with a low friction coefficient, resulting in a long lifespan with minimal maintenance costs. The hydroelectric industry is sensitive to the environment and requires materials with high durability, long-term use, minimal maintenance, and the avoidance of river pollution. Vesconite Hilube eliminates the need for oil or grease lubrication in many applications because it can operate without lubrication or can be lubricated by the water flow in the system. In Mining Operations
The origin of Vesconite bearings emerged in the gold mining industry, a notorious working environment known as one of the harshest in the world. The product was invented to replace traditional bronze bearings, which are widely used in mining equipment. Unlike copper-based materials, Vesconite eliminates the following three factors: the need for regular lubrication, susceptibility to dirt environments and grinding particles, and susceptibility to deformation and damage in wet environments. Vesconite is a safe, convenient, and ten times longer-lasting non-metallic solution compared to traditional bearings.
Benefits of Vesconite in the Mining Industry Vesconite has been proven to have a lifespan ten times longer than that of copper-based bearings under harsh operating conditions in the mining industry. Vesconite is highly resistant to wear and does not require lubrication during operation. Vesconite prevents potential damage to the shaft. Vesconite is not affected in dusty environments with grinding particles and moisture. Vesconite does not swell or deform in water environments. Vesconite has a low friction coefficient and high wear resistance, making it suitable for many mining equipment applications. Comparison with other materials. For traditional bearings used in drilling equipment, frequent lubrication and continuous maintenance are often required. Vesconite does not require these issues. Nylon bearings used in drilling pumps often swell in wet environments. Copper or nylon bearings quickly deteriorate when operating in dirty environments. Nylon bearings deform under high loads, leading to the failure and damage of related equipment quickly. Benefits of Vesconite for the Pumping Industry.
Vesconite has been used for decades in a wide range of pump-related bearing applications. Vesconite and Vesconite Hilube bearings are often recommended for most pump applications.

Vesconite operates in oil and fuel environments. Vesconite is very easy to install and remove. Vesconite extends the life of the shaft. Vesconite will not swell or deform due to water permeation and zero deformation. Vesconite can use clean water or saltwater as a lubricant. In the Railway Industry
Vesconite has been successfully used in numerous railway applications for decades. When using Vesconite, the rail parts save on maintenance costs, and issues such as noise and squeaking are significantly reduced.
Benefits of Vesconite in the Energy Industry.
