This paper describes the development of a ceramic ball bearing for use at temperatures of about 1000 to 1500 F. Several selected combinations of ceramic and cermet materials were screened in simple sliding and rolling experiments, and the most promising materials were selected for fabrication into full-scale bearings. Bearing experiments at temperatures of 1000 and 1500 F demonstrated the feasibility of bearing operation at these temperatures with little or no wear under moderate load and speed.
