Corrosion Resistant Range
For many applications, surface damages like corrosion (rust) and subsequent damages like premature failure, big noise and vibration values and lubricant failure are known. In order to optimize such critical application cases, FLT offers a wide range of rolling bearings and housed bearings made of stainless steel.
Applied materials are:
- X20Cr13 (AISI 420)
- X105CrMo17 (AISI 440)
- and more as applicable.
For optimum corrosion resistance, cages and steel shields can be produced of stainless steel, too. Precision balls and rollers are available in this material as well.
As a cost optimized version, bearing components can be coated with zinc or zinc-nickel layers.
Ceramic bearings are also available as optimum corrosion protection. Such solutions have a long service life even unser aggressive conditions like acid or salty water.
