When examining the advantages of chromium steel and stainless steel as Timken bearing materials, it is Timken Micro Bearing found that they do not only have the effect of rust prevention.Chromium steel is a common micro bearing material. It is harder than stainless steel, so it has a longer service life. However, at higher temperatures, its performance is not very good.
At the high temperature of 120c, it will undergo huge deformation and reduce the load. The continuous high temperature of 150C can be tolerated, but the instantaneous temperature of 150C or higher will reduce the service life of imported bearings. Heat treatment can make the bearing bear the high temperature of 170C at an instant.
