Sealing type overview

Seals for bearing arrangements are used to prevent solid contaminants and moisture from penetrating into the bearing and at the same time to retain the lubricant in the bearing or bearing arrangement.

Many factors have to be considered when selecting the most suitable form of sealing for a particular bearing arrangement.

Due to the strategic orientation of FKL on the agricultural application of bearings and bearing units where bearings operate in very harsh conditions, the first and main choice of FKL is the use of Integral bearing sealing.

It is an economic and space-saving solution. The bearings have shields or seals at one or both sides; those which are sealed at both sides are supplied with grease and are generally maintenance-free. Sealed bearings are generally used for arrangements where a sufficiently effective external seal cannot be provided, due to inadequate space or for cost reasons. Bearings fitted with shields are used where contamination is not heavy and where there is no danger of water, steam etc. coming into contact with the bearing, or where the freedom of friction of these non-contact seals is important because of the speed or operating temperature of the bearing. Bearing fitted with contact seals are preferred where contamination is moderate and where dampness, water, steam etc. may occur, or where a long service life without maintenance is required.

FKL Seal Type

RS Seal

Preview

sealing

Single lip seal that prevents the penetration of the soil, dust and water and it is exposed to the impact of the abrasive particles. Due to extended friction the permitted speeds are lower. It is mostly replaced with the improved version of sealing (S).

S Seal

Preview

sealing

Single lip seal with the labyrinth between the sheet part and the rubber lip which conducts the contact sealing. The friction and speeds are the same as with RS but provides much better protection against the rough impurity particles. This is very good sealing system: the sheet part protects the seal from the soil, dust and rough particles. At the same time makes the labyrinth with the rubber part. The rubber part provides contact sealing which prevents penetration of finer impurities, water, moisture, steam etc. Suitable for neutral conditions because of the presence of the foreign materials. It is used with the Y bearing (standard) and deep groove ball bearings.

F Seal

Preview

sealing

Dual sealing, protection cover placed on the inner ring protects against rough impurity particles and makes the labyrinth with the sheet part of the seal; then the sealing S type, with the labyrinth between the sheet part and the rubber lip that conducts the contact sealing. The friction and speeds are the same as with S but has much better protection against rough impurity particles. It is very good sealing system: the sheet part protects the seal from the soil, dust and rough particles. At the same time makes the labyrinth with the rubber part. The rubber part provides the contact sealing that prevents the penetration of the finer impurities, water, moisture, steam etc. Suitable for heavier conditions due to better protection against foreign matters. It is used with the Y bearings (standard).

D Seal

Preview

sealing

The double lip seal provides twice as good a seal as the S seal, while the maximum permitted rotational speed is adequately lower, due to the greater friction of the rubber lips against the steel inner ring. However, this rotational speed may be higher than with a 3-lip seal, up to 1500rpm. The sheet metal part protects the seal from the soil, dust and rough particles. At the same time makes the labyrinth with the rubber part. The main area of application of bearings with such sealing are agricultural and construction machines at installation place where the rotational speed is up to 1500 rpm.

T Seal

Preview

sealing

The construction is similar to S-seal, except rubber lip is tripled. Therefore, it seals better but has even larger friction. The permitted speeds are much lower, up to 500 rpm. It emerges out of external ring width and is applied only with special bearings for the agricultural machines (practically standard sealing for the disc harrow bearings) and to the less extent, Y - bearing program (delivery is made according to special request).

TB Seal

Preview

sealing

Dual sealing: strong metal flinger placed on the inner ring protects against rought impurity particles; then the sealing T type with the labyrinth between the sheet part and the triple rubber lips that conducts the contact sealing. Friction and speed are the same as T seal has, but considerably better protection against rough dirt. This type of sealing is applied on special bearings for the agricultural machines.

P Seal

Preview

sealing

By construction is the similar as T, except rubber lip is fivefold. Therefore, it seals better but has even larger friction. The permitted speeds are much lower, up to 500 rpm. It emerges out of external ring width and is applied only with special bearings for the agricultural machines (practically standard sealing for the disc harrow bearings) and to the less extent, Y - bearing program (delivery is made according to special request).

PB Seal

Preview

sealing

Dual sealing: strong metal flinger placed on the inner ring protects against rought impurity particles; then the sealing P type with the labyrinth between the sheet part and the five rubber lips that conducts the contact sealing. Friction and speed are the same as T seal has, but considerably better protection against rough dirt. This type of sealing is applied on special bearings for the agricultural machines.

TD Seal

Preview

sealing

Addutional lmetal cover with thickness of 1mm provides reliable mechanical protection. Unique combination of doble triple-lip seals protects the bearing from outer side and inner side as well. This seal presents one of the best sealing system for application in agriculture.

CASSETTE SEAL

Preview

sealing

The cassette seal is a two-part seal with 2 lips, which provides excellent protection against contamination and low friction. Therefore, bearings with this type of sealing can be used for high speed applications.

DIRTBLOCK SEAL

Preview

sealing

Dirtblock seal design has been optimized to provide excellent retention of the grease and maximum protection against solid and liquid contaminants. It is perfect choice of sealing for heavy duty applications in harsh environment and tough operating conditions.
