Grease or lubricating oil is essential for installing metal ball bearings. With xiros polymer ball bearings you can enjoy 100% lubrication-free ball bearings made of plastic. No grease No oil No residues on hands or machines! In most applications where ball bearings are used, mainly low loads and low speeds are required. Plastic ball bearings can be used in multi-functional applications, for example, in cases where they come into contact with liquid media, water or chemicals.
Contaminated lubricant is one of the main causes of bearing damage and often a major factor in the premature end in the service life of bearings. Around 70% of bearing failures are caused by lubricant problems, such as contamination in the lubricant (25%), incorrect lubricant (20%) or too little lubricant (14%).
Metal ball bearings have become indispensable in mechanical and plant engineering. However, there are sectors where conventional metal ball bearings reach their limits, such as the food industry and medical technology. There the factor of hygiene plays a major role, which makes lubricants a no-go.
