Most 3-bolt flanged bearings have a circular mounting flange with three...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: What kind of maintenance do sealed bearings require?

A: All of our sealed bearings are considered maintenance free and lubed for the life of the bearing. This is because they are packed with a heavy duty, lithium based grease. When the lube fully dissipates it is generally time to replace the bearing. However this does not mean that you cannot extend the life of the bearing. When they start to feel gritty you can remove the seals and soak the bearings in our Clean Touch over night. Then you can re-lube them with your lube of choice. Just keep in mind that the thinner the lube is, such as oil vs. grease, the quicker it will dissipate and need to be reapplied.
