What Is Ceramic Ball Bearing?
Ceramic ball bearings use ceramic balls instead of steel, making them lighter, harder, and more durable. They're great for high-speed and harsh environments like aerospace and medical applications. Ceramic ball bearings are high-performance components used in harsh environments where traditional steel bearings may fail. They can spin faster than steel balls without generating as much heat, making them ideal for high-speed machinery and electric motors. The lightweight and non-magnetic properties of ceramic ball bearings also make them ideal for aerospace applications. Overall, they provide superior performance compared to traditional steel bearings in many different applications.
Ceramic Hybrid & Full Ceramic
Ceramic hybrid ball bearings feature steel races and ceramic balls, while full ceramic ball bearings are made entirely of ceramic material. Both types of bearings offer excellent durability, low friction, and high performance in harsh environments.
However, full ceramic ball bearings are more resistant to corrosion and have a higher temperature tolerance than hybrid ceramic bearings. They are for medium load and medium speed applications. It is not possible to achieve the inner and outer ring roundness that is found with precision steel bearings so full ceramic bearings have lower speed ratings. On the other hand, hybrid ceramic bearings can handle higher loads due to their steel race construction. The choice between the two depends on the specific needs of each application.
Notable Features of Ceramic Ball Bearings
Ceramic ball bearings offer benefits such as preventing electrical arcing, reducing wear and operating temperatures, extending service life and grease life. They are durable, resistant to wear, and have cooler running temperatures than steel bearings. They are a great choice for improving equipment performance and minimizing maintenance costs over time.
