We empower pioneering nuclear energy and research.

The nuclear sector is one of the most demanding industries for bearings. By its nature, many environments involve specialised bearings that, once in place, cannot be regreased, replaced or otherwise maintained for the entire life span of an application, sometimes decades. For this reason, Carter low maintenance hybrid and ceramic bearings remain in high demand by nuclear engineers with applications that are too radioactive for replacements or repairs. We also offer special thin section bearings as well as high temperature bearings and cam followers of the type that are used extensively in a host of supporting applications in the nuclear engineering framework.

Hybrid, Ceramic and High Temperature Bearings (as well as cam followers and yoke roller bearings) form the backbone of the extensive and proven Carter Nuclear industry portfolio. Carter’s new bearing materials are designed to perform faultlessly with the reduced lubrication, higher speeds and higher loads which are frequently present in nuclear applications.


We also offer a wide range of bearings with non-magnetic properties for nuclear use. Carter offers full technical consultation together with application reviews and internal engineering design for nuclear applications. In partnership with our nuclear industry customers, we frequently offer custom manufacture together with comprehensive bearing product validation through testing. We always ensure that the correct combination of components are specified and selected for specific nuclear requirements.
