Carbonitrided Rolling Bearings
Longer operating life under boundary lubrication and contamination
Carbonitriding is an expanded heat treatment method. In addition, nitrogen is deposited in the surface layer of the bearing rings. This method increases the surface hardness and improves the wear resistance of the bearing. Due to the harder surface, the bearing is less sensitive to contaminants in the lubricant and to damage through particle overrolling. If optimum lubrication is not present, a lubricant film separating the surfaces cannot be formed.
