Ceramic bearing steel bearing, compared with the advantage is:1, speed higher than steel, ceramics, can reduce operating in the same precision and the centrifugal force, improve speed.2, high precision occasions: ceramic hardness and young modulus is higher than that of the steel, the same load, the smaller, thus mechanical deformation can be applied to more precise.Three, use longer than that of the steel bearing, the highest prolonged five times
**SI2N4 **ZrO2 **SSIC Si3N4 (Silicon Nitride) Ceramic Bearings The ultimate hub has to have the ultimate bearings. Silicon Nitride (Si3N4) ceramic bearings are 30% lighter than steel and 40% stronger. So finely balanced, they have an incredible maximum spin rating of 300, 000 rpm under load. Manufactured in matched sets of 15 balls per cartridge, they exhibit variance in size and sphericity of LESS than 2 millionths of an inch among the entire bearing set.
Full Si3N4 bearing has some better performance than ZrO2, the rings and balls made by full ceramic material: Si3N4, as a standard constructure, the cage made by PTFE, generally we also could make the cage with GFRPA66-25, PEEK, PI, Phenolic Textolite Tube, etc. Compares than the material of ZrO2, The SiN4 ceramics bearings could endure heavier load and could be used in higher temperature environment.
