Spherical roller bearings reduce grease egress

December 2nd, 2013, Published in Articles: Vector

Schaeffler’s new sealed FAG E1 X-life spherical roller bearings can reduce grease consumption by up to 80%. An innovative seal concept minimises grease egress and eliminates complicated relubrication systems while maintaining the same high dynamic and static load rating. The compact bearing, which has the same outside dimensions as non-sealed standard bearings, is therefore almost maintenance-free and is also protected against contamination. The omission of external seals, which can be replaced by sealed FAG spherical roller bearings in future, also save valuable installation space. The spherical roller bearings benefit from the proven properties of X-life, which provides higher dynamic load ratings and a longer operating life due to improved kinematics, optimised surfaces, and high-performance materials.
