Ceramic Ball Bearing Used In Performance Applications


Forged from the extreme conditions of racing environments, Turbonetics patented bearing technology has revolutionized turbocharger standards of durability and performance. Turbonetics offers a patented Angular-Contact Ceramic Ball Bearing design. This Turbonetics exclusive design is made with almost indestructible silicone-nitride ceramic balls. A conventional unit has a capacity of 60-80 lbs. of dynamic thrust load. The patented Turbonetics design can withstand anywhere from 1000 to 2500 lbs. of loading depending on the family size.


The “angular-contact” feature offers extreme strength because it is used as the loading surface instead of softer, weaker parts in standard units. What does this mean? It means the turbocharger is exceptionally durable in high pressure ratios, is not susceptible to many thrust failures common with standard bearing turbos, will provide fantastic transient response while remaining very fast to spool-up. With Turbonetics Angular-Contact Ceramic Ball Bearing units, you will build boost faster, reach boost sooner in the RPM band and have the peace of mind the turbocharger will survive


Along with our full engineering staff ready to help you match turbochargers for your specific requirements, Turbonetics houses compressor and turbine balancing machines as well as multiple VSR (Vibration Sorting Rig) Core Balancing Machines. “Core balancing” ensures a turbocharger rotor assembly is balanced in its final assembled condition, at close to normal operational speeds. The VSR process ensures a low vibration level, producing a quiet and reliable turbocharger with a long service life. Turbonetics can address your specific needs for a wide variety of OEM makes and models. Please call our sales staff to discuss how we can help you today.
