Why AISI 316 Stainless?
KMS Bearings Inc. manufactures radial ball bearings utilizing type 316 stainless which provides superior corrosion resistance when compared to conventional 440 stainless bearings. AISI 316 is more resistant to atmospheric and general corrosive conditions than any of the other standard stainless steels.
316 stainless is widely used in the food and medical industries. Bearings produced from this type of steel can run in liquids or can run dry at slow speeds.
Machined semi-precision rings, polymer cages, and grade 100 type 316 stainless balls are used in the manufacture of KMS Stainless Ball Bearings.
This type of bearing is intended primarily to reduce friction and permit free movement of turning parts. They are best suited for moderate loads and slow speeds.
AISI 316 stainless, non-magnetic, unground semi-precision Balls
Standard balls are AISI 316. When necessary, other types of balls are available on a special order basis.
Ball Retainer (Cage)
Standard ball retainers are acetal. For increased chemical compatibility polypropylene can be provided. When higher heat capability is required, bearings can be manufactured with either a high temperature polymer cage or without a cage.
Open design is standard. Polymer shields and seals can be provided on a special order basis.
KMS supplies the bearings with a light proprietary oil that reduces friction and noise, and is non contaminating in most applications. When necessary, special order lubricants can be provided.
For higher temperature capability consult KMS.
