CLI deep groove ball bearings are designed primarily for radial loads but will also withstand thrust or axial loads in both directions. They have a thrust load capacity of up to 50% of the bearing’s static radial load rating for the heavy duty sizes such as the 6300 series. These popular metric ball bearings are manufactured from AISI52100 (GCr15) chrome steel. The 6202 bearing size is a popular option, included in the size options below.
CLI chrome steel is the most common material for ball bearings due to its high load capacity and good low noise properties. Chrome steel bearings are also more cost-effective. These popular metric bearings, with a steel retainer and a suitable lubricant, can be used at temperatures of 120°C constant or up to 150°C intermittent. Above these temperatures, the load capacity of chrome steel is reduced. These bearings are not suitable for use in corrosive environments as the steel is not corrosion resistant. The standard cage or retainer is a two-piece ribbon type made from SPCC steel strip.
Due to the lack of corrosion resistance and temperature limits for this range, different materials should be chosen for very high temperatures or corrosive environments. Fortunately, CLI bearings stock corrosion resistant bearings and bearings for extreme temperatures in alternative materials for most sizes listed below such as AISI440 grade stainless steel, AISI316 stainless steel and ceramic materials...
Open popular metric bearings are supplied with oil lubrication. Shielded or sealed bearings are usually supplied with grease lubrication but shielded bearings can be lubricated with oil for low speed, low friction applications.
