Stainless Steel Ball Bearings
IBSCO's stainless steel bearings deliver the corrosion resistance and superior hardness of stainless steel making them ideal for applications in food/beverage, medical and other environments where moisture, corrosive or abrasive materials are present. Based on the toughness of stainless steel, bearings made of this material are likely to have an extended service life, reduce maintenance and equipment downtime.
Stainless Bearings Offered:
Specifiers of IBSCO stainless steel ball bearings have a choice of two stainless steel options, both providing excellent hardness characteristics and a high level of corrosion resistance.
DD400™ Steel Bearings
0.7% C; 13% Cr
A 400 series Martensitic stainless steel combined with a proprietary heat treating process, miniature and instrument bearings manufactured from "DD" equal or surpass AISI bearings in hardness and corrosion resistance, and offer superior low noise characteristics. DD400 stainless steel bearings commonly run smoother, last longer, and provide better performance at low torque.
AISI 440C Steel Bearings
1% C, 17% Cr, .5% Mo
A hardened , martensitic stainless steel, 440C is the standard choice for a wide range of military and commercial applications. 440C stainless steel bearings suitable for applications which require corrosion resistance in a thermal range from room to mid-hot.
