Carter's advanced design self-lubricating sleeve bearing provides continuous, dependable lubrication for the life of the unit. Because there are no internal moving elements, Neverlube™ bearings offer trouble-free operation in a wide variety of applications, including situations where the equipment is subject to frequent wash downs. The self-lubricating feature also helps reduce maintenance costs and assures adequate lubrication at all times, greatly reducing the possibility of bearing failure and unscheduled downtime.

They will also run at much higher speeds than needle bearing cam followers. Hi-Rollers™ are tightly sealed with an expansion plug on one end and feature radial contact lip seals on the bearings.
