Bearings are essential mechanical components of machinery used in a variety of industries. A bearing’s purpose is to help facilitate desired motion, limit undesired movement, and reduce friction. Bearings are thought to date back as far as the ancient Egyptian era, when wooden bearings were used to assist with the movement of heavy objects. Since then, the concept has developed considerably; bearings now come in a variety of forms, and are made from many different types of materials.
Bearings are an essential component in the majority of mechanical designs and equipment. It is important to consider the most effective materials when designing industrial machinery, especially in applications where water, or other liquids are present. Many materials will be unable to overcome the challenges associated with operating in a wet or corrosive environment.
To overcome the challenges faced by industries involved in water processing, water filtration and liquid handling, full ceramic bearings should be used. This paper will outline the properties of full ceramic bearings, and enable you to determine whether they are the most appropriate type for your mechanical processes. Learn More »
