Upgrade your Babbitt Bearings to Pioneer StannuMAX™
Pioneer StannuMAX™ High Temperature Babbitt
The patent for TEGOSTAR™* Babbitt Material has expired. As a result, Pioneer Motor Bearing offers a generic material, StannuMAX™ babbitt, with equivalent chemical composition.
As an end-customer you no longer have to wait for extended babbitt delivery times from a single source in a foreign country. Pioneer has reduced the material lead-time from months to days. We work with a number of partners in our supply chain to ensure StannuMAX™ is the equivalent chemical blend to what your machinery requires.
This babbitt is supplied in accordance with Siemens Specification TLV997701_072017, as called out in paragraph 4. Chemical Composition in wt.-%, shown in the following table:
