Choosing the Right Rolling Element
Silverthin is at the forefront of offering a variety of rolling elements tailored to your needs.
Why the Choice of Rolling Element Matters
- Material Compatibility: Different applications demand different resistances, be it to corrosion, heat, or wear and tear.
- Load Capacity: The right rolling element can enhance a bearing’s ability to manage and distribute loads.
- Operational Speed: Depending on the material, rolling elements can influence the speed at which bearings operate.
Rolling Element Options
Our range of rolling elements includes:
- AISI 52100: Renowned for its high hardness and excellent wear resistance, this is a popular choice for many standard applications.
- 440C: A stainless steel option that offers great corrosion resistance, making it ideal for applications exposed to challenging environments.
- Ceramic (Silicone Nitride): Exceptionally light and hard, ceramic rolling elements offer lower friction and are ideal for high-speed applications. They also excel in resisting corrosion and electrical conductivity.
- Custom Solutions: Contact Silverthin Engineering for custom rolling element options for your application.
