Ceramic hybrid ball bearings use steel races and ceramic balls. Ceramic balls weigh up to 40% less than steel balls. This can reduce centrifugal loading and skidding, allowing hybrid ceramic bearings to operate up to 50% faster than conventional bearings. Ceramic hybrid ball bearings have ceramic balls in place of steel balls, and are constructed with steel inner and outer rings.
Full ceramic bearings are made entirely of ceramic material and offer many benefits compared to common steel bearings. Full ceramic bearings can reportedly continue to work under extremely high temperatures and are capable of operation at temperatures up to 1800°F. Full ceramic bearings are reportedly highly corrosion resistant, can stand up to most common acids, and are non-conductive.
