This European Standard specifies the required characteristics, inspection and test methods, qualification and acceptance conditions for spherical plain bearings in corrosion resisting steel with self-lubricating liner, low starting torque and low friction coefficient, elevated duty cycles under low oscillations at different operating conditions.
This standard applies whenever referenced.
These self-lubricating spherical plain bearings are intended for use in fixed or moving parts of the aircraft structure especially for control mechanism and operating systems. The bearings are designed subjected under low dynamic radial loads and slow rotations in the temperature range of −55 °C to 120 °C (−67 °F to 248 °F).
The liner may be of a fabric or composite material bonded to the inside diameter of the outer ring or in a composite material moulded into a pre-formed cavity between the inner and outer rings.
