Hybrid Bearings using ceramic balls were designed for applications where high grade electrical isolation is necessary and / or high speed occurs. The robust design together with a combination of steel rings and ceramic balls makes the bearings useful for many different applications. Life is extended due to elimination of electrical corrosion. In high speed operation seizures are avoided.
Hybrid Bearings have a higher speed capability and will provide longer service life, lower friction and a lower level of energy consumption than all-steel bearings in most applications. Ceramic hybrid bearings are widely used in electric motors, aerospace applications, performance racing, high temperature equipment, under water applications and more.
