VHP hub bearings

X-style hub bearings are tailor-made for the application to increase performance and product lifetime in VHP® and Producer® hubs.

  • Bearings consist of non-metallic load and spacer bearing balls that perform well with low lubrication and will not magnetize, corrode, or generate particles.
  • Races are made from hardened 440 stainless steel which is highly resistant to corrosive gases and is more durable than other stainless steel alloys.
  • Ultra low diametral clearance for better stability and improved wafer placement repeatability. This is especially critical in the Producer application with its large, offset load to the hub.
  • High-performance, long-life grease is selected specifically for the application to maximize bearing lifetime.
  • Bearings include a 3 year warranty, more than any other VHP hub bearing in the market.
