Advance Bearing Seal – 56111793Request Info
Ball and roller bearings are available with different types of shields and seals. These are commonly referred to as closures. Closures can extend bearing life by preventing contaminants from reaching the critical surfaces inside the bearing, and they help retain the lubricant in the bearing. As is the purpose of this bearing seal.
Ball bearings are available with and without enclosures. Richard Picard, field applications engineer at NMB Technologies Corporation explains that compared to open bearings, shielded and sealed bearings provide better protection from contamination and also add protection against lubrication migration. Different types of closures may be supplied on the same bearing. Special designs are also available.
‘RS’ Type Seal – The ‘RS’ type seal is a rubber seal that makes contact with the inner race. Most commonly made of Buna-rubber. They are removable. They offer the best sealing against contamination and lubricant leakage. Generally the speed rating is reduced about 35% that of the ‘Z’ type or open and torque is increased. Temperature range is 15 F to 220 F.
‘V’ Type Seal – The ‘V” type seal is a non-contact type rubber seal that does not contact the inner race, but rides in groove machined in the inner races creating a labyrinth effect. Its performance falls between a metal shield and contact type rubber seal. Most commonly made of Buna-rubber. They are removable. They offer the good sealing against contamination and lubricant leakage. Generally the speed rating is not reduced and is comparable to that of the ‘Z’ type or open. There is no seal induced torque increase. Temperature range is 15 F to 220 F.
