Alumina Ceramic Balls are used in high-temperature and high-wear applications to seal off air and gas. It is possible to employ this ultrahard ceramic balls in applications that demand exceptional strength.
- Silicon Nitride Ceramic Balls,
While silicon-nitride ceramic, which is frequently used to make bearings, is lighter and more easily polished than several types of bearing steel, it is also harder than other materials and can tolerate higher temperatures.
These balls are perfect for situations where strength under large loads and wear resistance are required; they are typically used in place of metal in bearings and rollers. This zirconia is stronger and less likely to crack under impact than conventional zirconia, alumina, and silicon nitride ceramic due to the presence of yttria. If cracks do develop, they won’t expand, extending the material’s life and dependability. Additionally, this zirconia mixture is resistant to wear from rubbing up against another component or abrasion from chemical slurries.
- Silicon-Carbide Ceramic Balls,
This silicon-carbide ceramic, which is extremely strong and has good corrosion resistance, is frequently used in chemical processing conditions for rubbing parts like bearings and bushings. Because of its hardness, this material is resistant to wear and abrasion but is also more brittle than other ceramics. Use caution when using it at fast speeds or with large weights. It withstands corrosion when exposed to acids and other chemicals better than other ceramics because it is nearly chemically inert. It won’t deform or crack from temperature changes since silicon-carbide ceramic conducts heat well and doesn’t expand considerably in the presence of heat. It is suitable for use in furnaces and refractories and is rated for usage at up to 2550° F.
