Joe Conyers

Graphite Metallizing Corporation, the manufacturers of self-lubricating Graphalloy® bushing materials for pumps and process equipment, has appointed Joe Conyers as territory sales manager for California, Arizona, and Nevada.

Conyers holds an aerospace engineering degree from the U.S. Naval Academy. With more than 30 years of experience in the bearing industry, he previously served as SKF’s United States and Canada sales manager for maintenance products. He will be based out of his office in California.

“Joe brings valuable bearing experience to our sales team,” said Eben Walker, general manager of Graphite Metallizing. “His bearing application experience in some of the toughest environments will help engineers apply Graphalloy to their most difficult applications.”

Graphite Metallizing Corporation of Yonkers, New York has been solving tough bearing problems for more than 100 years. The company began in 1913 when two engineers developed a method for putting molten metal into carbon to create a new material called Graphalloy, a graphite/metal alloy.

Used in the manufacture of bushings, bearings, and other components for machinery and process equipment, Graphalloy can be the solution to the toughest bearing, bushing, thrust washer, cam follower, or pillow block bearing design problem. It is available in more than 100 grades with specific properties that meet a wide range of engineering solutions and specifications. FDA accepted grades of Graphalloy are available for use in food service equipment. NSF® International has certified two grades of Graphalloy material for use in municipal well pumps and water treatment plant applications

Graphalloy bearings have operated for 20 years, and longer in some applications. Standard designs are available but most Graphalloy products are custom-designed to the unique requirements of the specific application. Graphite Metallizing Corporation is ISO certified.
