Featuring Bearing Type: Oil Seals
Oil seals have a flexible lip that rubs against a shaft or housing to prevent the leakage or contamination of fluids and debris. For proper installation, the seal lip should point towards the lubrication being contained. Some oil seals have a spring to help keep the lip in contact with the shaft. The sealing orientation and direction is important to consider for oil seals and grease seals...more »
Industrial lubricants are oils, greases and other substances designed to reduce friction, binding or wear. Specialized characteristics may enhance thermal conduction or reduce electrical resistivity. Other industrial lubricants can provide sealing against moisture. Industrial lubricants are available in many forms such as low viscosity oils..more »

Questions:
Q: Are greased bearings lubed for the life of the bearings?

A: No, traditional steel bearings always need lubrication to have a long life and lubrication will always be reduced over time as it will dissipate with use. How fast the lubrication dissipates varies greatly depending on RPM, operating temperature, operating environment and set up. If you have a particularly high temp application we would need to know the operating temperature to suggest suitable lubrication.
