This specification covers all metal plain spherical bearings which are self-aligning for use between -65 °F and 250 °F. this specification covers bearings with alloy stell races, aluminum bronze races, and an entierly CRES bearing (ball and race). All units are inces, unless otherwise stated.
This standard covers the requirements for spherical, self-aligning, self-lubricating bearings which are for use in the ambient temperature range -65 to +160 °F (-54 to +71 °C) at high cyclic speeds. The scope of the standard is to provide a liner system qualification procedure for helicopter sliding bearings defined and controlled by source control drawings. Once a liner system is qualified the source-controlled bearings are further tested under application conditions.
This standard defines general 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 of -65 to +160 °F while reacting steady state loads in addition to oscillating loads and motions. The operating temperature range of -65 to +160 °F reflects the current temperature range for existing parts, but allows for expansion in the future.
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 ARP discusses common rod end locking devices with recommended applications and some of the advantages and disadvantages of specific configurations. An appendix is included with factors to be considered for selection of positive locking devices and a discussion of safetying devices for rod end assemblies.
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 test method establishes a standard procedure for using plug gages to evaluate dimensional conformance of lined inside diameters of bearings. Bearings covered by this test method include sleeve bearings and lined bore spherical bearings. Note that this method gives no indication of true cylindricity.
