Nonmetallic Bushings – Must for Cable Protection from Abrasion

Nonmetallic Bushing for Preventing Wear and Tear:

Nonmetallic bushings are used to protect cables from any abrasion.  They are put around the cables when cables are already in place, if they are split insulating bushings. There are different sizes of nonmetallic bushings to fit the cables they are protecting. The non-metallic bushings are used to prevent sharp metal edges from stripping the cable. It gives the cables prolonged usage. There are also snap-in bushings to fit existing holes in metal studs. It saves the user time and money when pulling wires through metal stud construction by avoiding wear and tear of the cables. The bushings can also be used for drywall for installing low-voltage wires/cables (such as speaker wire).

Application Areas:

The nonmetallic bushings are used in a variety of applications that include the following, but not limited to:

  • Automotive
    • For the automotive industry, bushings provide benefits of low friction that extend the wear life, maintenance free and reliable operation.
  • Pumps
    • Bushings are used for all common hydraulic fluids and many types of water-oil emulsions.
  • Compressors
    • Compressors also use bushings were they are subject to heat and friction during periods of marginal and boundary lubrication.
  • Agricultural
    • Bushings are used in a wide range of agricultural equipment such as tractors, mowers, cultivators, front loaders, trailers and etc.
  • Renewable Energy
    • Bushings are used for renewable applications. The bushings can be used in turbines, gates, and valves.
  • General Industrial
    • Bushings are used in wide range of industrial electrical applications such as gears, solenoids, textile machinery, food processing equipment, traffic restrictor and pipe hangers and etc.
  • Primary Metals
    • Bushings can be found in a wide range of applications where they are subjected to dirty, abrasive environments.
