Bearing performance improves with seal pairing

SKF vastly extended the performance and product life of its mounted tapered roller bearings by pairing them with a superior seal. The Type E mounted tapered roller bearing incorporates SKF’s CR Seal, which extends service life by virtually eliminating ingress of contamination, even under harsh conditions.

These units typically break down because of seal failure. By improving the seal performance, they can be designed to last much longer, extending uptime and increasing reliability for the industrial equipment in which they are found.
