Industrial plastic balls are ideal for light-load bearing and flow control applications. Because they are quiet, plastic balls are usually chosen for office furniture, bearings, medical products, and similar applications. Plastic balls are also widely used in flow control applications, pharmaceuticals, food processing, and chemical processing equipment. ITI produces phenolic balls for the oil and gas industry. Phenolic balls are used in oil well completions to seal well sections for fracturing. The phenolic balls that are often used in the finishing process are called cage balls, drop balls, and/or plug balls.
Plastic Balls Manufacturer introduces the characteristics of industrial plastic balls:
Industrial plastic balls have low friction and hardly need lubrication. They are much lighter than metal balls and are resistant to corrosion and wear. Compared to metals with considerable corrosion resistance, plastics are generally cheaper. Many plastics are also extremely heat resistant. Silicone balls can withstand temperatures up to 600°F, for example, while tetrafluoroethylene balls can withstand almost the same high temperature.
The standard score plastic ball ITI can use almost any plastic material to make the ball. Certain plastic ball materials are more common than others. I regularly produce nylon balls, Delrin balls, polypropylene balls, and polyethylene balls.
