Greases for capped bearings

Depending on the design, series and size, bearings capped on both sides are filled with one of the following standard greases:
  • basic design metric deep groove ball bearings → table 1
  • SKF Energy Efficient deep groove ball bearings → low-friction grease GE2
  • inch deep groove ball bearings
    • D < 63.5 mm → MT47
    • D ≥ 63.5 mm → MT33
On request, bearings can be supplied with the following special greases:
  • high temperature grease GJN when D ≤ 62 mm
  • wide temperature range grease HT or WT
  • wide temperature range and silent running grease LHT23
  • low temperature grease LT
The technical specifications of the various greases are listed in table 2. The standard grease is not identified in the bearing designation (no designation suffix). Special greases are indicated by the corresponding grease suffix. Check availability of bearings with special grease prior to ordering.
