This Bunting Bearings BB-16 powdered metal thrust washer supports high axial loads. It is made of sintered BB-16 powdered metal for strength and resistance to wear and shock. The bearing material is impregnated with an extreme pressure oil to provide a lubricating film over the entire bearing surface. The bearing has a maximum load value of 8,000 psi (pounds per square inch), a maximum velocity value of 35 sfpm (surface feet per minute), and a maximum pressure velocity (PV) value of 75,000. It operates over a temperature range of 10 to 220 degrees F (-12 to 104 degrees C). This thrust washer is for use in various applications such as automobiles, pumps, office machines, and home appliances, among others.

Plain bearings provide low-friction sliding contact for relative motion between parts of a machine. They are the simplest type of bearing, with no rolling elements, and there are three basic types of plain bearings: radial plain bearings (also called sleeve bearings or bushings) to support rotating or reciprocating shafts, thrust bearings (also called washers) to support axial loads on shafts, and linear bearings to support and guide the motion of parts in a straight line. Flanged sleeve bearings have a flange on one end to support axial loads. Spherical plain bearings are radial bearings that allow for angular misalignment of the shaft. Plain bearings are made from durable, low-friction materials such as sintered or cast bronze alloys, plastic, or a combination of a metal shell and a plastic bearing surface. They can be lubricated externally or by a lubricant embedded in the bearing material. Plain bearings are used in automobiles, construction and mining equipment, textile manufacturing equipment, and robotics, among others.
