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