Marine grade 316 stainless steel ball bearings for shafts from 3mm to 50mm diameter
These bearings are available from stock in the UK and are highly resistant to seawater, salt spray and many chemicals. 316 stainless steel bearings are suitable for temperatures up to approximately 500°C if full complement or up to 80°C with the standard PE cage. They can also be used for cryogenic applications down to minus 250°C depending on cage material.
As 316 stainless steel is relatively soft, these bearings are only suitable for low loads and speeds and are also semi-precision. Corrosion resistant bearings can also be supplied in synthetic materials or zirconia or silicon nitride.
