When it comes to supporting oversized, heavyweight moveable structures in tough conditions, you need to wear products that outperform and outlast. There’s nothing better for this task than Spherilube bearing assemblies from Lubrite® Technologies.

Heavy Loads, Seamless Movement 

Spherilube bearings are oil-less assemblies designed to operate flawlessly under tremendous loads in wet, dry, and extreme-temperature environments. Other benefits include:

  • Fully Self-Lubricating
  • Low Coefficient Of Friction
  • Can Carry Dynamic And Static Loads
  • Prevents Galling, Scoring, And Seizing
  • Accommodates Structural Rotation
  • High- And Low-Temperature Operation
  • Maintenance-Free
  • Lightweight
  • Cost-Effective
  • Resists Dirt And Dust
  • Dampens Vibrations
  • Resists Corrosion

Critical Applications, Proven Results

At Lubrite® Technologies, we don’t make claims we can’t keep.

When NASA committed to launching the final series of space shuttles, the launchpad rotary bridges at the Kennedy Space Center Launch Complex needed updating. The massive size and engineering considerations unique to this structure posed special challenges.

Lubrite® Technologies was up to test. We designed, engineered, and manufactured custom Spherilube assemblies to support the complex procedure of loading a vehicle bound for interstellar travel without complication. Due to the project’s high-profile nature, it was imperative to achieve the highest levels of precision and accuracy.

Our engineers developed them to operate flawlessly under extreme loads and exposure to heat and saltwater. We used advanced machinery to manufacture the bearing on schedule while maintaining all customer-specified requirements. By leveraging our time-tested and reliable bearing technology, NASA supplied the payloads for the final space shuttle launches quickly and smoothly.
