Single row deep groove ball bearings
SKF single row deep groove ball bearings (fig. 1) have deep, uninterrupted raceway grooves. These raceway grooves have a close osculation with the balls, enabling the bearings to accommodate radial loads and axial loads in both directions.
Single row deep groove ball bearings are available open or capped (with seals or shields). Open bearings that are also available capped, may have recesses in the outer ring (fig. 2).
SKF inch bearings in the EE(B), RLS and RMS series (→ product table) are mainly used in the aftermarket and, therefore, SKF recommends not to use these bearings for new bearing arrangement designs.
SKF can also supply bearings with a tapered bore. For detailed information, contact the SKF application engineering service.
