Featuring Bearing Type: One Way Bearings
Drawn cup needle roller clutches have a small radial section height and are also commonly known as One Way Bearings or Anti-Reverse Bearings. This design uses the same small radial section as drawn cup needle roller bearings which make better use of available space. The units are compact, lightweight and operate directly on a shaft; they are also suitable for transmitting high torque...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 »
Featuring Bearing Application: Bicycle
The Boca Bearing Company is proud to announce the new Lightning Bearing Technology (LBT) line of ceramic bicycle bearings for hubs, bottom brackets, headsets and pivot points. Ceramic by its nature is lighter than steel by about 2/3 the weight; it is harder than steel when it is in ball form and it is virtually frictionless because it is non-porous. A ceramic hybrid bearing has steel races with ceramic balls and a full ceramic bearing...more »
Lightning Lube Technology is specially designed to form a molecular bond with all moving metal parts within any application. Use it to reduce friction, improve performance, decrease wear and extend life. Lightning Lube can be used when installing new bearings and components or to preserve your existing bearings and components..more »
Questions:
Q: What is the best water proof seal?

A: There is no true water proof seal for bearings. Bearing seals are primarily designed to retain the lubrication inside the bearing. Most bearing seals are considered water repellant and will keep moisture out of the internal components, but they will not prevent water from entering the bearing if it is submerged. If you require a bearing that can operate submerged in a liquid, we would suggest a ceramic hybrid or full ceramic bearing depending on the operating environment.
