Metcar® M-310 is carbon graphite impregnated with nickel-chrome alloy. M-310 is the highest temperature composite material and can be used in temperatures from cryogenic to 1700 F (900 C). The nickel impregnation provides excellent strength, heat dissipation, and chemical resistance.
Benefits of Upgrading Pump Components to M-310
Metcar® M-310 has a combination of low-friction, high strength, high-temperature limit, and excellent heat dissipation. It is completely non-seizing and non-galling and can run dry during pump start-up and through typical process conditions which would damage traditional materials. M-310 has excellent dimensional stability and a low coefficient of thermal expansion, allowing precise tolerances on your critical parts. Bearings that would otherwise require oil or grease can often be upgraded to M-310 eliminating the need for external lubrication. M-310 is a great choice for the following components:
- Mag-drive or canned-motor pump bearings
- Pump wear rings
- Agitator bearings
- Vertical pump shaft bearings
- Non-lubricated bearings
