Stainless Steel Bearings Advantages:

Stainless steel bearings advantages are as below,
1. Excellent corrosion resistance
Stainless steel bearings are not easy to rust and they have strong corrosion resistance.

2. Washable
Stainless steel bearings can be washed off without the need of re-lubricatation.

3. Stainless steel bearings can run in liquid
Due to the materials used, we can run bearings and bearing seats in liquid.

4. Slow depletion speed
AISI 316 stainless steel does not require oil or grease to protect against corrosion.
Therefore, if the speed and load are low, there is no need for lubrication.

5. Sanitation
Stainless steel is naturally clean and non-corrosive.

6. High heat resistance
Stainless steel bearings are equipped with high temperature polymer cages or cages without a complete complement structure.
Therefore, they can work in a higher temperature range, which is of 180°F to 1000°F (Requires high temperature grease).


Since stainless steel bearings have so many advantages, therefore, they are widely used in different applications as below,
For example, medical equipment, cryogenic engineering, optical instruments, high-speed machine tools, high-speed motors, printing machinery, food processing machinery and so on.

Stainless Steel Bearings Classification:

1. AISI 440 stainless steel bearing series
2. AISI 316 stainless steel bearing series
3. AISI 304 stainless steel bearings series
