The Use of Ceramic Ball Bearings

Have you ever thought of using ceramic hybrid bearings or ceramic bearings? Our SUN BEARING will told you that there are many benefits to using either of these types of bearings and it will all be covered below.

Ceramic Hybrid Bearings

A ceramic hybrid bearing has steel races with ceramic balls. The ceramic balls work best when there are high loads, high speeds, and high temperatures.These types of bearings are useful for when long life is needed and there is minimal lubrication because it can handle these extreme applications. Ceramic is much lighter than steel and is non-porous, non-corrosive, and non-magnetic. Ceramic balls are stronger than steel. Because they are non-porous they are basically frictionless and can spin quicker than steel balls.

Ceramic ball bearing

Ceramic balls are usually created from silicon nitride, alumina oxide,zirconia oxide,and silicon carbide. Ceramic is basically a type of glass surface. It contains a very low coefficient of friction which means it is good for applications that need to reduce friction. The life of a ceramic bearing is increased due to the fact that they require less lubrication and are harder than steel balls. There is also less heat generation at high speeds because the thermal properties are better than they are for steel balls.

The benefits to using ceramic hybrid bearings are there is minimal need for lubrication, this means they will last longer. They also are highly efficient,weigh less,and are smaller. Another benefit is that there is no cold welding between the ceramic balls and races. They also are great for high loads, high speeds,and extreme temperatures. Finally, they can be used in a variety of machines and production lines.


How Ceramic Hybrid Bearings are used

The use of Ceramic hybrid bearings varies from performance racing vehicles, to electric motors, to laboratory equipment, to underwater applications, to aerospace applications, and many more. The best use for ceramic bearings is in anything that contains high speeds, low friction, and longer life. SUN BEARING can provide you all you need about this kind of bearing. 

Full Ceramic Bearings

Full ceramic bearings are made completely of ceramic material. That includes the races and balls. This means that they are superior to bearings made of steel in many ways. If you are looking to achieve higher RPM’s, reduce the weight, or there is a harsh environment where the temperatures run high,using ceramic bearings would be ideal.

The Benefits of Full Ceramic Bearings

Ceramic bearings will not corrode or rust. They are 2/3 the weight of steel, contain lower friction which results in less energy consumed and are resistant to alkali, blood, salt, water, and acids.

An environment requiring non-corrosive,non-conductive, or non-magnetic bearings would be best.
