What is the difference between 2RS and ZZ bearings?

RS - Bearing with rubber seal on one side, one side open. 2 Z / ZZ - Bearing with a metal seal on both sides. Z - Bearing with a metal seal on one side, one side open.

What is the difference between sealed and shielded bearings?

“Shields are metallic and there is no contact between the shield bore and the bearing inner ring. ... A contact seal is designed to contact the bearing inner ring with the lip of the seal,” he said. Both non-contact seals and shields allow reduced rotational torque as there is no contact to the inner ring.

What are the two types of seals used on bearings?

Let's break down the different types of seals available for your bearing products.

Do ZZ bearings need to be greased?

A double sided shielded bearing 2Z or 2RS is not supposed to be greased. They are lubricated for life, and keep the dirt out (and also the grease in). The term RS stands for Red Seal (rubber) and the Z indicates metal shields in the SKF terminology. If the bearing has only one shield you should supply grease.

What does RZ mean on a bearing?

Rz: low friction seal (non-contact type) with steel lined synthetic rubber on one side of the bearing; Rs: The bearing side has a contact seal (contact type) of synthetic rubber or polyurethane. The contact and non-contact means that the seal ring of the bearing contacts with the inner ring of the bearing.

Which bearing is used for high speed?

Considerable speed/temperature improvements can also be made with double direction angular contact thrust ball bearings containing ceramic balls. This type of bearing was originally designed for very high stiffness and is used in combination with cylindrical roller bearings.

What does Du mean on a bearing?

Answered 3 years ago. DU bearings are self lubricating composite (metal-polymer) bearings . The bearing structure comprises of a steel support for mechanical strength and a permeable sintered bronze inter-layer impregnated with high wear resistant and low friction material.

What is C bearing?

The bearing Dynamic Capacity, C, is defined as the constant stationary radial load which a rolling bearing can theoretically endure for a basic rating life of one million revolutions. ... Bearing dynamic capacity is used to predict a rating life for each bearing at its anticipated loading and rotational speed.

Can you put too much grease in a bearing?

Too much grease volume (overgreasing) in a bearing cavity will cause the rotating bearing elements to begin churning the grease, pushing it out of the way, resulting in energy loss and rising temperatures.

How do I know if my wheel bearings are sealed?

When trying to decide whether a bearing is sealed using the AFBMA or SKF code, note the shields or seals section. If the bearing number uses the AFBMA code, look for "EE" (or "2RSI" for SKF) to determine if the bearing is sealed on both sides. This is the only way to identify whether a bearing is sealed.

Are Sealed bearings better?

We use sealed so the bearings are protected from road debris and weather, so they spin cleaner and with less friction for longer. Sealed bearings perform as well or better than loose bearings, without the maintenance.
