by | Aug 1, 2023 | Sealed Double Row Bearings, Spherical Roller Bearings, ZKL

Ritbearing is proud to partner with leading bearing manufacturers in the industry. Ritbearing now partners with the ZKL Group to offer customers top of the line sealed, spherical roller bearings to provide optimum protection and improve efficiency for a variety of applications.

What are Sealed, Double Row Spherical Roller Bearings?

Sealed spherical roller bearings have two rows of spherical rollers in the outer ring that creates the ability for mutual tipping of the bearing’s rings, allowing for the simultaneous transfer of radial and axial loads in both directions. The sealed spherical roller bearings can be made with a cylindrical or tapered bore, making them ideal for applications with high loads where tipping may be an issue.

Sealed, double row spherical roller bearings function the same as standard open, double row spherical roller bearings; however, the sealed bearings prevent dirt, debris, and other impurities from contaminating the bearing. ZKL’s New Force sealed, double row spherical roller bearings are designed with three different types of seal material to maximize protection from any contaminants. (NBR, HNBR, and FKM rubber) Contamination can cause the bearing to wear more quickly, increase maintenance costs, and it increases the risk and costs of manufacturing downtime.

Sealed, double row spherical roller bearings can carry the same weight loads as traditional open, double row spherical bearings, but the sealed bearings can be operated at lower speeds and can be re-lubricated through holes in the outer ring. This allows for an increased lifespan of the sealed bearing and essentially makes it “maintenance free”.

Benefits of Sealed, Double Row Spherical Roller Bearings

ZKL’s sealed, double row spherical roller bearings are compatible in many industrial applications. They ship ready for use and are lubricated with one of the highest grade lubricants in the industry. ZKL’s New Force sealed roller bearings present the next evolution in bearing technology.

Some of the top benefits of Sealed Spherical Roller Bearings include:

  • Economical and environmentally friendly
  • Increased bearing durability and lifespan
  • Lower maintenance requirement
  • Lower lubrication need

ZKL’s New Force sealed, double row spherical roller bearings have various applications, but are especially ideal for industries and environments with higher levels of humidity and debris, due to the protection of contact seals on both sides of the bearing.

ZKL continues to innovate and provide quality bearings to meet expanding customer needs. By partnering with the ZKL Group, Ritbearing continues to provide customers with the most updated and cutting-edge bearings available on the market. ZKL’s New Force sealed, double row spherical roller bearings provide maximum debris protection which also works to improve production efficiency and reduce cost in the long run.
