TBP Bearing produces ceramic
hybrid ball bearings since 2000.
New hybrid ceramic ball bearings from TBP Bearings offer
key performance benefits over standard steel ball
bearings by preventing electrical arcing (and resultant
damage to balls and raceways), resisting wear, running
at higher speeds and lower operating temperatures, and
promoting extended service life.
TBP hybrid ceramic ball bearings combine traditional
steel rings matched with silicon nitride (ceramic)
balls, making them lighter, harder, and more durable
than steel counterparts.
Ideal for large variable-speed electric motors, they
provide natural insulating properties to prevent
electrical arcing, which can cause fluting-pattern
surface damage to raceways, often resulting in excessive
noise and bearing replacement. TBP hybrid ceramic ball
bearings eliminate both the potential damage and related
maintenance procedures and costs.
TBP hybrid ceramic ball bearings are 40% less dense than
steel balls for reduced centrifugal force and friction,
enabling them to run faster and cooler; harder than
steel for enhanced wear resistance against hard
particles, contaminants, and vibration; and highly
inelastic for increased bearing stiffness and reduced
deflection under load to promote reliable performance.
Ceramic Hybrid bearings using Silicon Nitride balls
(Si3N4) meet and exceed today's requirements offering a
long list of characteristics far superior to that of
conventional all-steel bearings.
All silicon nitride components are non-magnetic and
electrically insulative They are used in the following
applications: (Aerospace/Military, Computer,
Instruments, Medical, Pumps, Textile, Equipment,
Automotive, Dental, General Industry, Mechanical,
Semicon Equipment, Biotechnology,
Defense, Machine Tools, Processing, Sporting Goods)
A wide range of TBP hybrid ceramic bearing types are
available. Made-to-order (MTO) warranted products can be
developed to meet customized application demands.
