Ceramic Hybrid Bearings have Steel races and Ceramic Balls. Ceramic Balls works for applications where high speed, high loads and extreme temperatures are factors. Ceramic is lighter than steel and is non-porous, non-magnetic, non corrosive. Ceramic balls are also harder than steel and is capable of spinning faster than steel balls. Since Ceramic Balls require less lubricant and the balls are much harder it is a contribute to the increase of bearing life.
Full Ceramic Bearings have races and balls that are entirely based on ceramic material. Ceramic material is perfect for any application that is seeking for higher speed. Ceramic can also withhold any harsh environment and high temperature.
There are different types of grades in both hybrid and full ceramic bearings based on the texture and the shape of the balls. The ceramic materials of which the ceramic bearings consist of are: silicon nitride (SiN4), alumina oxide (Al203), zirconia oxide (ZrO2) and silicon carbide (SiC).
