With more than 70 years of experience developing high duty friction and wear materials for both sliding bearings and seal components, Morgan's siliconized graphite materials set the bar for mating pairs over thirty years ago, in terms of abrasion resistance and load carrying capability. In the past few decades, Morgan has led the industry in developing the next generations of tribological materials that offer improved strength and hardness, abrasion and corrosion resistance, stiffness, and performance.

With its extensive portfolio of both mechanical carbon and silicon carbide materials, Morgan's Engineers help customers to evaluate materials in order to select the right one for a particular application.

Joyce Dayton Corp - Solar Tracking Drive Solutions

Joyce Solar Actuators are designed to precisely position smaller solar tracking equipment. Their robust and efficient DC motor (24V or 36V) keeps power consumption to a minimum. Travel speeds remain nearly constant regardless of the load. Ideal for rugged environments common to the solar industry, these cost-effective SA actuators have an IP65 protection rating. Self-locking features in the mechanism ensure that the solar actuator will hold position throughout the daily tracking cycle. Specifications: • Double clevis mounting for easy installation • Clutch for overload protection • Adjustable limit switches for flexible travel settings • Reed sensor digital feedback for accurate positioning • Duty cycle is 25% (4 min. running, 12 min. rest) • Lubricated for life
