Oil, Water or Process Lubrication
Ceramic/cermet bearings are used successfully in many oil-, water- and process-lubricated pump applications.
In applications lubricated by water or process fluid, bearing materials need to be both chemically resistant to the fluid and able to operate with thin films. With clean fluid, polymer bearings provide an inert solution with high load capacity. Where abrasives are present, ceramic/cermet bearings provide a durable option.
