The Boca Bearing Company has recently expanded inventory to include Electric Motor Quality (EMQ) Ceramic Hybrid bearings. The electric motor and electric power generation industries are constantly seeking increased efficiency and longer up-times. This electrical equipment is often relied upon for mission critical situations and can be very costly to repair.
Electric Motor Quality (EMQ) bearings have extremely low noise levels so they can be used in electric motors or other noise critical applications. The elements that result in bearing noise are surface finish, ball grade, ring roundness, cage design, cage quality and absolute manufacturing repeatability. EMQ bearings are available in 3 different noise levels ZV2 (low noise), ZV3 (very low noise) and ZV4 (extra low noise.) Typically EMQ bearings are supplied in chrome steel 52100 with standard or C3 radial play and they can handle heavy radial loads with moderate axial loads.
Ceramic hybrid ball bearings use ceramic balls and steel races. Ceramic balls weigh up to 40% less than steel balls, depending on size. This reduces centrifugal loading and skidding, so hybrid ceramic bearings can operate up to 50% faster than conventional bearings. This means that the outer race groove exerts less force inward against the ball as the bearing spins. This reduction in force reduces the friction and rolling resistance. The lighter ball allows the bearing to spin faster, and uses less energy to maintain its speed.
The Boca Bearing Company stocks a full range of ceramic balls, ceramic hybrid bearings and full ceramic bearings. With over 8000 different bearings and well over 10 million bearings in stock, The Boca Bearing Company offers the largest stock of replacement bearings for all industrial, medical, and specialty applications. Boca Bearings has consistently led the industry in bringing advanced ceramic technologies to market. The Boca Bearing Company is one of the most trusted names in ceramic bearing technology.
