This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) establishes the requirements for self-aligning, self-lubricating plain spherical bearings incorporating polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) in a liner between the ball and the outer race for use in a temperature range of -65 to +250 °F (-54 to +121 °C).
This specification covers all metal plain spherical bearings which are self-aligning for use between 65 °F to 250 °F. This specification covers bearings with alloy steel races, aluminum bronze races, and an entierly CRES bearing (ball and race). All units are inches, unless otherwise stated.
This standard covers plain and flanged sleeve bearings which are self-lubricating by incorporating polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) in a liner in the bore for use in the temperature range of -65 to +325 °F.
This standard covers plain and flanged sleeve bearings which are self-lubricating by incorporating polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) in a liner in the bore for use in a temperature range of -65 to +250 ˚F (-54 to +121 °C).
This document defines the requirements for spherical, radial-journal, conical and thrust bearings which are of laminated elastomeric construction. These bearings are for use in an environment having a temperature spectrum within a maximum ambient temperature range of -65 degrees F to +160 degrees F while reacting oscillating loads and motions.
This test method outlines a recommended procedure for performing bond integrity tests of bonded peelable woven fabric reinforced polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) liners, hereafter referred to within this document as "PTFE liner" or "liner". The data from these tests shall be used to determine if the product meets the "bond integrity" requirements of the applicable specifications.
This test method outlines a standard procedure for performing cyclic reversing load testing on oscillating sliding bearings. The wear data from these tests is to be used for qualification requirements and to establish bearing design criteria.
