DEEP GROOVE BALL BEARINGS
Single Row Deep Groove Ball Bearings
Single Row Deep Groove Ball Bearings are the most common type of bearing. We offers a deep groove ball bearing that is non-separable and without filling slots. Relatively high load ratings are achieved by utilizing optimum size and number of balls for each bearing. These bearings will handle both radial and axial loads in either direction and are suitable for high rotational speeds.
We also offers a separable outer ring ball bearing, which is noted by the prefix “E” or “BO”. These bearings are produced with a bore up to 20 mm and are suitable for smaller loads and high rotational speeds.
Shielded or Sealed Bearings
Single row deep groove ball bearings can be produced with seals or shields. The shields (noted by a suffix of Z, ZZ, ZR, or ZZR) are produced from metal and create a non-contact sealing surface. The seals (noted by a suffix of RS, 2RS, RSR, or 2RSR) are produced by covering a vulcanized metal ring with a rubber material. The bearings are produced with contact seals; however, non-contact seals may be produced upon request. Our engineering staff is available for inquiries or information regarding our non-contact seals.
Bearings with double seals or shields are filled with grease and are lubricated for the life of the bearing. These bearings are good for a temperature range of -22°F to +250°F. Our standard grease is electric motor quality grease, Chevron SRI2, which exceeds the temperature rating of the bearing by approximately 97°. The bearings can be filled with other types of grease upon request.
