TIME SAVING® PERFORMANCE 
MOUNTED BALL BEARING

sealmaster

Sealmaster® large-bore performance Gold Line mounted ball bearings now feature a patented* TIME SAVING axial groove in the inner ring bore to allow for easier bearing removal and ability to reuse the shafting with minimal cleanup "Saving You Time".

 

 

FEATURES

  • The axial groove in the inner ring bore is designed
    to provide clearance from the burr created when
    the setscrews are properly torqued to lock the bearing
    to the shaft.
  • The axial groove extends the entire length of the inner
    ring for removal in either direction.
  • No impact to ball path roundness, load and speed rating
    or bearing performance.

Time is a valuable commodity in plant operation. When a bearing needs to be replaced, either planned or unexpectedly, every minute of downtime can cost thousands of dollars. The axial groove can reduce the total downtime required to remove the bearing, saving more than just time. To determine cost savings versus a conventional mounted bearing (not including lost production cost) the table below is a simple calculation tool.
