Ceramic Bearings   

Typically bearings with rings and rolling elements of ceramic material are available as ball and roller bearings including sealed versions. Main application areas are pumps and compressors where the bearings are lubricated by their own process liquid.

Benefits of the ceramic (Si3N4) silicon nitride ball bearing:           

        Higher Speeds

        Corrosion Resistant

        Higher Temperatures - 800ºC

        Little to No Lubrication Required

        Longer Life/Low Friction & Less Heat


High-speed precision ceramic ball bearings are widely used in the aerospace, navigation, marine and chemical industries, because of their rigorous manufacturing requirements. In the past China was predominantly dependant on importing these Ceramics.  LYC has begun working on production of these high speed precision ceramic ball bearings, their first results have been extremely successful.  LYC has developed a new design concept for these bearings, including the utilization of new materials and technology to meet customers exacting application requirements. They have received customer recognition for their outstanding efforts in this development area.
