There are three directions in which powder metallurgy has made outstanding contributions to the problems of efficient and economical lubrication. First, we have the porous (sometimes called the self‐lubricating) bearing, then there are the steel‐backed bronze lined oil retaining bearings and bushes and the copper lead or other alloy porous bearings and lastly, powder metallurgy has provided materials for filtering oils at high speed and under considerable pressures.
