1. The flinger adds mechanical and centrifugal protection against contaminants entering the bearing cavity, and provides a first contacting seal with its rubberized lip acting axially against the gasket seal.

2. The space between the flinger rubberized lip and the gasket seal is filled with SKF food grade grease in order to provide additional protection.

3. Additional sealing efficiency is achieved through the labyrinths created by the flinger’s external diameter and the outer ring, plus the metallic seal insert and the inner ring shoulder.

Food compatible materials

  • The flinger and the seal’s contacting lips are made of an FDA approved rubber compound
  • The space between the insert seal and the flinger is filled with SKF food grade NSF approved grease
