The New Conceptual Copper Alloy Bearings without Lead for Diesel Engines to Achieve Longer Life under Higher Load 981036
This paper presents the development of the new conceptual copper alloy bearings in diesel engines for achieving longer life under higher load. The new concept utilizes a copper based lining as the main sliding part, which has a higher seizure resistance than conventional lead bronze, and makes the overlay as thin as 5m in order to ease the initial running-inFor this development, we selected two additives for the copper to get a higher seizure resistance, one being silver, and the other is tin. These additives will lead to a higher bearing performance.
