ANALYTICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF ADAPTING BEARINGS FOR USE IN AN ULTRA-HIGH VACUUM ENVIRONMENT. PHASE 1, 2 AND 3
WESTINGHOUSE ELECTRIC CORP EAST PITTSBURGH PA
This report includes Phase 1 Screening of Wear and Friction Characteristics of Plastics, Dry Powders, Composites, and Alloys Phase 2 Outgassing Determination of Plastics, Dry Powders, and Composites and Phase 3 Evaluation of Dry Powder Lubricants and Self-Lubricating Materials in Ultra-High Vacuum Bearing Tests. An investigation was made of the lubrication of gears and bearings in vacuum environments by using dry powders as a lubricant, and dry self-lubricating materials in the bearing retainer. The wear and friction characteristics of various dry powders and dry self lubricating materials were evaluated. The materials included reinforced thermosetting plastics, dry lubricant filled and unfilled thermoplastics and dry lubricant filled sintered alloys.
