Stainless Steel Slewing Bearing 170x310x46mm MTO-170 Slewing Ring

2020-06-29

Stainless steel slewing bearing is usually produced for severe working conditions such as high moisture or outdoor environment. Slewing rings made of stainless steel are rust resistance so have longer service life.

Stainless steel material for slewing bearings also have different types, such as 304 and 440, so what's the differences between them? Check "Difference between 304 and 440".

BRS can produce MT series slewing bearing with stainless steel 9Cr18(440), below is the model MTO-170 four point contact ball slewing bearing. It's easy to find the difference between stainless steel slewing bearings and bearing steel slewing rings. From the surface, stainless steel slewing rings have a frosted texture, while the GCr15 or 50Mn made slewing bearings have a polished surface.

Advantages of stainless steel bearings

1. Corrosion resistance, can work under water or in high moisture environment.
2. Washable. Stainless steel bearings can be washed, so convenient to arrange maitenance.
3. High wearability.
4. Sanitation. Stainless steel is naturally clean and non-corrosive, so many food processing machinery will use stainless steel bearings.
