Stainless steel bearing

Stainless steel bearings are used wherever there is a risk of corrosion. This means humid air or other media that cause corrosion. Typical applications are in the food and beverage industry, but stainless steel bearings are also used in car washes. The running properties are comparable to ball bearings made of normal rolling bearing steel. The load capacities can be approx. 20 % lower, depending on the steel used, as stainless steel made of 1.4034 - AISI 420 has a lower hardness than normal rolling bearing steel. If the same service life is required, special steels must be used. Stainless steel bearings are available in a wide variety of series. Stainless steel bearings are most frequently used as deep groove ball bearings. Fröhlich & Dörken has many years of experience, especially in the food and beverage industry.
The manufacturers have various prefixes and suffixes for stainless steel bearings, such as "S" (FAG) or "W" (SKF).

We supply stainless steel bearings in the make FUD and NSK.

Useful information about stainless steel bearings

Stainless steel bearings: corrosion resistance and durability

Stainless steel bearings are the optimal solution for demanding applications where corrosion and durability are critical. These high-quality bearings offer a wide range of benefits and are ideal for environments where conventional bearings reach their limits.

  1. Corrosion resistance: The outstanding feature of stainless steel bearings is their excellent corrosion resistance. They are resistant to moisture, weak acids, weak alkalis and many other aggressive media. This makes them ideal for applications in chemical plants, food processing and many other industries where corrosion is a problem, e.g. car washes.
  2. Longevity: Under the circumstances described, stainless steel bearings are characterized by a longer service life compared to chrome steel bearings. This results in lower operating costs and increased operational reliability.
  3. Versatility: These bearings are available in various designs, including deep groove ball bearings, angular contact ball bearings, self-aligning ball bearings and many more. This means they can be used in a wide range of applications, from mechanical engineering and the automotive industry to food processing and medical technology.
  4. Resistance to chemicals: These bearings are resistant to a wide range of chemicals, making them suitable for use in aggressive environments.

If you're looking for bearing solutions that offer corrosion resistance, durability and versatility, stainless steel bearings are the right choice. Contact us today to find out more about these high-quality products and how they can meet your specific requirements.
