To keep lubricant in and contaminants out of the bearing, SKF can supply some super-precision bearings with integral seals:
Sealed bearings can provide cost-effective and space-saving solutions for many applications. Sealed bearings include:
- angular contact ball bearings with non-contact seals
- single direction angular contact thrust ball bearings for screw drives with non-contact seals
- double direction angular contact thrust ball bearings for screw drives with contact or non-contact seals
Bearings sealed on both sides are typically lubricated for the life of the bearing and should not be washed. They are filled with the appropriate amount of high-quality grease under clean conditions. They cannot be relubricated except for certain bearings for screw drives which are equipped with relubrication features.
