The SKF three-barrier solution for harsh operating environments

This environmentally friendly, cost-effective bundle of products can extend bearing service life without complicated and expensive sealing arrangements.

The effectiveness of this solution is in its simplicity. It protects the bearing during assembly and operation.

1. SKF L-seals or S-seals - These standard, cost-effective housing seals are characterised by their ability to prevent the ingress of contaminants.

2. Housing grease - SKF recommends filling the housing with SKF LGGB 2 grease to act as a contamination barrier. This biodegradable, environmentally-friendly grease is an excellent alternative to filling the housing with bearing grease.

3. Integral bearing seals - These very effective seals keep the high quality bearing lubricant in and contaminants out of the bearing cavity.
