Selection of Bearing Type: Integral Seals

Selection of Bearing Type: Integral Seals

The selection of a seal is of vital importance to the proper performance of the bearing. SKF supplies bearings with integral

  • shields (fig)
  • low-friction seals (fig)
  • contact seals (fig)

that can provide an economic and space-saving solution for many applications. A large number of sizes are available for

  • deep groove ball bearings
  • angular contact ball bearings
  • self-aligning ball bearings
  • cylindrical roller bearings
  • needle roller bearings
  • spherical roller bearings
  • CARB toroidal roller bearings
  • cam rollers
  • Y-bearings and Y-bearing units.

All bearings with integral seals on both sides are filled with a grease of appropriate quality and quantity.
