These types of bearings are very resourceful. They have a simple design, require very less maintenance and they are appropriate for very high speeds. Deep groove ball bearings have low vibration, friction and noise which allows the very high speeds of rotation. They are available in various sizes and designs because they are most widely used bearings.

Types of Deep Groove Ball Bearings:

  • Single row deep groove ball bearing
  • Capped single row deep groove ball bearing
  • ICOS oil sealed bearing units.
  • Single row deep groove ball bearing + snap ring groove
  • Single row deep groove ball bearing + snap ring and shields
  • Stainless steel deep groove ball bearing
  • Capped stainless steel deep groove ball bearing
  • Single row deep groove ball bearing + filling slots
  • Single row deep groove ball bearing + filling slots + snap ring
  • Double row deep groove ball bearing.



Also called Insert Bearings are based mainly on series 62 & 63 of sealed deep grove ball bearings. Y-bearing are convex shaped on the outside and an extended inner ring. You may need to use variant locking devices for faster and easier mounting onto the shaft. The series usually differs depending on the way the bearing will be locked onto the shaft, for example with:

  • Y-bearing + grub screws(set)
  • Y-bearing + eccentric locking collar
  • Y-bearing + SKF Concentra locking technology
  • Y-bearing + adapter sleeve
  • Y-bearing + interference shift



These types of bearings have raceways in the outer and inner rings that are displaced in the direction of bearing axis. This means that they can accommodate combined loads i.e. radial and axial loads. The axial load carrying capacity of angular contact ball bearings increases with increasing contact angle. Contact angle is defined as the angle between the line joining the points of contact of the ball and raceways in the radial plane along which the load will be transmitted from one raceway to another and  a line perpendicular to the bearing axis. Most common designs are:

  • Single row angular contact ball bearings
  • Double row angular contact ball bearings
  • Four-point angular contact ball bearings.



These have 2 rows of balls and a common sphered raceway in the outer ring. They are insensitive to angular misalignment of the shaft relative to the housing. Very little friction is generated which allows then to run cool even at high speeds. Self aligning ball bearings are available in several designs:

  • Basic design bearings
  • Bearings with an extended inner ring
  • Sealed bearings.



Caged bearings can serve heavy radial loads, higher speeds and quick accelerations. SKF ‘s high-capacity cylindrical roller bearing can combine the high load carrying capacity with a full complement bearing together with the high speed capability of the bearing with a cage.



These are bearings with cylindrical rollers, small in diameter and are relative to their length. The ends of the rollers are slightly adjusted to modify the line of contact between the raceways and rollers. This enables the bearing to last longer. Needle roller bearings have a high load carrying capacity hence making them the best choice for bearing arrangement where radial space is limited. There are a wide range of series, designs and sizes too. Kindly contact us for more information.



Tapered roller bearings have tapered inner and outer ring raceways which are designed to accommodate both the simultaneous acting radial and axial loads. The projection lines of the raceways meet at a common point on the bearing axis to allow rolling with minimal friction.



Spherical roller bearings have 2 rows of rollers i.e. a common sphered outer ring raceway and 2 inner ring raceways inclined to an angle to a bearing axis. This enables the bearing to be self aligning and insensitive to misalignment of the shaft relative to the housing which could have occurred due to shaft deflection. This bearing is also able to withstand heave axial loads in both directions.



CARB bearings are single row bearings with long, slightly barrel-shaped symmetrical rollers. The outer ring has a torus-shaped raceway with a profile radius extending beyond the center of the bearing. These bearings are self-guiding, meaning that they always adopt the position where the load is favorably distributed over the roller length regardless whether the rings are misaligned or axially displaced. CARB Bearings can greatly reduce noise and vibration levels for example in paper machines and fans too. Its ability to distribute loads keeps the friction and heat levels low. Hence, this extends the life of the lubricant together with the bearing.



They are produced as single direction or double direction thrust ball bearing. They accommodate axial loads only and must not radial load. They are separable i.e. housing washer, shaft washer, ball and cage assembly(s) can be mounted separately.



They are designed to accommodate heavy axial loads and shock loads. Must not be suspended to any radial load. The ends of the rollers are relieved slightly to modify the line contact between raceways and rollers which prevents stress peaks at the roller ends to extend bearing service life. Cylindrical roller thrust bearing are very stiff and they require little axial space. These bearings are manufactured with one or two rows.



SKF needle roller thrust bearings are fitted with a form-stable cage to reliably retain and guide a large number of needle rollers. They accommodate heavy axial loads and shock loads. They provide high level of stiffness with minimal axial space. In applications where adjacent components cannot serve as raceways, the assemblies can be combined with bearing washers in different series.



Have specially designed raceways and can accommodate a large number of asymmetrical rollers. The rollers contain optimum conformity with the washer raceways to optimize load distribution along the roller length. Therefore these bearings can operate in very high speeds and can withstand heavy axial loads in one direction and heavy radial loads. The load is transmitted between raceways at an angle to the bearing axis.



They are designed to run on all types of tracks and can be used in conveyor systems, etc. The bearings have a thick-walled outer ring, which enables accommodation of shock loads while reducing distortion and bending stresses. The standard outer ring is beneficial for applications with angular misalignment relative to the track might occur or where edge stress need to be minimized. With the exception of single row cam rollers, track runner bearings are also available with cylindrical outer ring running surface.

Industrial Shaft seals are used to seal the opening between a rotating and a stationary component or between 2 components in relative motion. To be more efficient, they should operate with minimal friction and wear, even under unfavourable conditions. SKF offers a wide variety of designs, materials and excursions with each of them having specific properties making them suitable for a particular application.



Radial Shaft Seals are used  between rotating and stationary machine components or between 2 components in relative motion. They are used in a variety of applications for operational reliability and service life of both machines and equipment.



The design of SKF Mudblock cassette seals has been optimized to provide excellent retention of either grease or oil and maximum protection against liquids and solid contaminants. SKF mudblocks are majorly used in wheel-end applications i.e. front and rear axles of tractors, agriculture machinery, construction equipment, forestry equipment and off-highway trucks.



To seal efficiently, radial shaft seals must run against a smooth, round counterface. SKF offers wear sleeves for heavy industrial applications, LDSLV3 and LDSLV4. Outside contamination particles and polishing friction between a rotating shaft and a seal can, over time result in severe shaft damage. Hence, LDSLV3 and LDSLV4 are recommended for applications where solid contaminants can reach the seals, like in rolling mills, primary metal plants and in chemical and mineral plants.



SKF track pin seals, SKF Trackstar, are specifically designed for oil lubricated track chains in off-highway applications. The seals are installed on the pin that connects a pair of links in the chain. The sealing rings retains the oil between the pin and the brushing and excludes contaminants. SKF Trackstar seals provide several important benefits :

  • Extended service life of the undercarriage
  • Reduces internal bushing and pin wear
  • Easy installation
  • Interchangeability with sealed and lubricated track pin seals



SKF metal face seals type HDDF are designed for use under severe service conditions at relatively low circumferential speeds. They offer reliable protection against solid and liquid contaminants as well as leak-proof retention of lubricants. It is was found to be equally suitable for a range of applications where effective protection is required against sand, soil, mud, water etc. Applications are:

  • Various types of mixers
  • Sand treatment equipment
  • Conveyors and other construction equipment
  • Agricultural machinery
  • Washing equipment
  • Grinding mills and other pulverizing equipment
  • Ore dressing equipment
  • Mining equipment



V-ring seals are unique all-rubber seals for rotating shafts and are used in an extremely wide range of applications. They are usually used as secondary seals to protect primary seals in highly contaminated environments. They are entirely of elastomers without fabric or metal reinforcement and are therefore easy to install. They can be stretched and depending on size, pushed over other components e.g. flanges, pulleys or even housing.



SKF axial clamp seals are designed for large and very large shaft diameters. They are suitable for use as primary seals or as secondary seals in applications where primary seals are subjected to excessive solid or fluid contaminants. They are made of profiled strips of non-reinforced nitrile rubber and are held firmly in position by stainless steel band clamps. They are available for shaft diameters ranging from 150 to 4 600mm (5.9 to 181 in.)
