As a result of the addition of heavy-duty seals to more sizes within the SKF Explorer deep groove ball bearing range (fig. 1), more applications can benefit from this proven seal design. Since the launch of the SKF Explorer high- performance bearing class, more than 4 billion SKF Explorer deep groove ball bearings have been manufactured. The popularity stems from their high quality and performance characterized by:
- high dynamic load-carrying capacity
- lower friction and operating temperature
- long grease life
- low noise and vibration levels.
These characteristics lead to significantly longer bearing service life.
