8 good reasons to use AISI 316 Stainless

SUPERIOR CORROSION RESISTANCE:
Most bearings failures today are caused by corrosion. A KMS 316 stainless bearings can be utilized in environments destructive to conventional units.

CAN BE WASHED DOWN:
They can be washed down without the penalty of having to re-lube to prevent rust.

CAN RUN IN LIQUIDS:
Due to the materials used our bearings and housings can run in liquids.

MADE FROM FOOD + MEDICAL GRADE MATERIALS (FDA + NSF)

CAN RUN DRY IN SLOWER SPEEDS:
AISI 316 Stainless do not require oil or grease for corrosion protection. Therefore, if the speed and load are low there is no need for lubrication.

NON MAGNETIC STAINLESS
Austenitic stainless steels, like AISI316, usually are not considered to be magnetic materials.[1] The basic composition of the metal is a 18-8 chromium-nickel with molybdenum additive.

HYGIENIC:
Bearing from AISI 316 Stainless and are naturally clean because they do not corrode or require lubrication in certain applications.

HIGH HEAT CAPABILITY:
316 Stainless bearings fitted with high temperature polymer cage or without a cage in a full complement construction, can run at higher temperatures ranging from 180° F to 1000°F. Contact KMS for details.
