Preston, Washington (PRWEB) November 17, 2011
National Precision Bearing, NPB, a leading supplier and distributor for airframe control bearings, precision miniature bearings, and commercial industrial bearings announces expansion of inventory in stainless steel bearings for corrosive and food handling environments. NPB’s new stock offering now includes inch and metric sizes ranging from 1mm bore to 50mm bore. Stainless steel bearings have similar mechanical properties to chrome steel bearings with the advantage of being resistant to corrosion. There are several types of stainless steel ball bearings, ranging from 440C type which offers the greatest hardness and surface finish, to 302 which has extreme toughness and corrosion resistance.
“By expanding our stock offering of stainless steel bearings, NPB is presenting the market with a dramatically wider selection of precision bearing options for corrosive environments,” noted Tom Koetje, NPB Product Manager.
Many bearing failures today are caused by corrosion and for specific applications stainless steel radial ball bearings serve as the best solution. The rust preventative properties that stainless steel offers are ideal for chemical environments, and wash down applications and where food is present.
The NPB website has added detailed product pages to our website that detail the additional sizes and configurations that are now standard inventory at National. The website now includes an extensive interchange of stainless steel bearing part numbers from all major manufacturers.
