Bearing Features

Deep groove ball bearings incorporate grooved raceways on both the inner ring and outer ring, which enable them to sustain moderate axial loads in both directions in addition to radial loads. Balls are separated by steel cages, permitting high-speed operation. Double row angular contact bearings are designed to accomodate combined simultaneous acting axial and radial loads.

Balls are normally separated by high-speed Polyamide cages. Most bearings are prelubricated with Mobil Polyrex EM grease or Chevron SRI-2, which provides excellent lubrication up to 350°F. Sealed and shielded bearings are lubricated for life. Bearing Steel Standard bearings utilize high quality 52100 through hardened steel. Stainless steel units utilize high quality AISI 440C stainless steel to combine corrosion resistance and provide hardness and strength.

Bearing Configurations Radial ball bearings are manufactured as either sealed (2RS), shielded (ZZ) or open. Many bearings can also be supplied with snap rings (NR). Sealed (2RS) bearings feature contact lip seals that provide excellent protection from liquids and contamination. However, seal rubbing can result in friction (drag) and produce heat, which could be a concern in high-speed applications. Shielded (ZZ) bearings have non-contact steel shields that do not protect against liquids but add no friction or heat build-up during operation.

Open bearings are supplied with a coating of light oil and are used in oil bath and oil mist environments. Snap ring (NR) bearings are supplied with snap ring grooves and snap rings installed on the OD.

(NOTE: Not all bearings are available as NR.)
