VICAN SHIELDED CERAMIC HYBRID

SHIELDED HYBRID BEARINGS WITH CERAMIC BALLS AND STAINLESS STEEL RACES

Our shielded hybrid bearings have raceways or rings in 440 stainless steel, cages and shield in 304 stainless steel and balls in ceramic. In this case, the ceramic used is Silicon Nitride (Si3N4).

The benefits of this type of bearing comes from the characteristics of ceramic when compared to stainless steel. Among them, greater hardness, low coefficient of thermal expansion, lighter weight, more precision and greater resistance to corrosion, thermal shocks and impacts stand out.

The VICAN brand emerged from the evolution of this type of bearing. Our hybrid bearings have ABEC 7 precision and are already at an advanced level of development after a few years of testing and applications.

For those looking for high performance and greater durability, this is one of the best cost-benefit options due to the high rotation power by minimizing friction between materials.

Armored hybrids differ from open ones by the shields on their sides. These are intended to protect the internal structure from small impurities and also maintain the lubrication of the part for longer thus minimizing the need for more frequent maintenance.

Hybrid bearings have the advantage of being able to work “dry” in the mechanism into which they are inserted, however the use of suitable lubricants is recommended to increase the durability of the parts, reducing wear and tear between components and inhibiting possible oxidation on stainless steel parts.

We recommend the use of our special fluids for cleaning and adequate lubrication of this type of material.
