Conservation and substitution technology for critical metals in bearings and related components for industrial equipment and opportunities for improved bearing performance.
Washington, DC: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, 1985 Jan; :1-446
The purpose of this workshop was to identify available technologies and opportunities for new technologies in conservation, substitution, and displacement of critical and strategic metals in bearings systems. Equally significant objectives were considerations of technologies in materials processing and design to extend the life of bearings and related components. Also considered was the value of an organized effort to gather and develop information for a data base on substitution and conservation technology for chromium and other critical metals that would be available as a contingency measure in the event of a crisis in supply. All findings and candidate recommendations developed in the workshop were summarized and are presented.
