The Bearings Up-Close

They are also made with a ball cage of heat stabilized nylon with fiber-glass reinforcement. The nylon material provides a natural lubricity for longer life.

Fiberglass reinforcement allows higher operating temperatures than plain nylon, is more resistant to fatigue than metallic cages, and prevents the cage from retaining moisture in wet environments.

Their features include Dodge’s QuadGuard sealing system and the Maxlife ball cage, designed to maximize life and be compatible with advanced synthetic grease formulations.

They are recommended for industries providing harsh conditions, such as aggregates, cement, paper, wood products and metals where sealing is particularly important.
