Bearings for Water Fountain Systems

KMS plastic or 316 stainless bearings have been successfully used in spinning decorative water fountains. They can operate with lubrication and will not corrode.

bearings for foutnainKMS bearings are ideal for submerged applications. They are designed with additional clearance to ensure contamination can flow through the bearing and thereby avoid clogging.

Critical Design features:

  • POM, PBT plastic races and cage
  • 316 stainless balls

Bearing construction features True Race Technology™ ball grooves and anti-clogging bearing designs. These key features ensure the continued operation while submerged and the ability to tolerate suspended articles without clogging.

Additional reasons for use:fountain ball bearing

  • Flow-Thru Technology™: Bearing construction incorporates increased clearances in all critical internal dimensions to allow for expansion and contraction of plastic. This design ensures free movement in environments that would lock up conventional bearings.
  • Mounting feature integration: A KMS bearing can be designed and manufactured as an integrated assembly that incorporates mounting features to reduce parts count and ease assembly.

Plastic Vs Steel

Product Integration: A plastic bearing can be mounted into other components or parts such as plastic wheels, pulleys or housings. In certain design concepts, seamless integration can be achieved where the bearing will have the pulley profile as the outer ring, and the shaft or a fixing clip replaces the inner ring . This integration lowers assembly time and also results in utilization of fewer parts, increasing affordability.
