Non Corrosive & Specialty Ball Bearings
Not all bearings are created equal
Magnus offers the highest quality non-corrosive and specialty bearings and housings, either from our extensive in-stock inventory or from our ability to custom fabricate to exact specifications - in quantities from one to millions.
Why Choose Non Corrosive Specialty Bearings
Our non-corrosive bearings are made with materials that resist corrosive environments, such as:
- Water & moisture
- Weak acid & alkali
- Strong acid
- Reactive gas
We offer non-corrosive bearing materials to for thrust bearings, flanged bearings, and several other bearing types to ensure your needs are met.
- Stainless Steel Bearings – Stainless steel is used to make bearings due to its ability to resist surface corrosion. This is because stainless steel has a higher content of chromium (around 18%) and nickel. The chromium reacts with oxygen to form a protective, passive film of chromium oxide on the surface.
- Ceramic Bearings – Most commonly arranged as a hybrid of stainless steel rings and ceramic balls, ceramic bearings are hard for increased durability to accompany corrosion resistance.
- Acetal Polymer Bearings – Excellent corrosion resistance and dielectric properties. Generally paired with stainless steel or hard glass balls for additional corrosion resistance. They can be washed and retain their corrosion-resistant qualities and are perfect for gas, liquid media or food processing applications.
- High Carbon Chromium Steel – Extremely hard, can bear heavy loads and provide long bearing life. Less resistant to corrosion than stainless steel, but the chromium content still provides some resistance. They are more cost-effective.
With literally thousands of standard and non-standard bearings available - in both inch and metric sizes - you’ll enjoy quicker delivery and less downtime for your equipment.
