BL deep groove radial ball bearings are lubricated with standard greases suitable for a wide variety of applications, speeds and temperatures. Most are pre-lubicated with Mobile Polyrex EM or Chevron SRI-2, which provide excellent lubrication up to 350° F. Bearings can also be supplied with specialty greases and fill percentages to meet your application demands.
Sealed and shielded bearings are lubricated for life. Pre-lubricated and open bearings are coated with rust-prohibitive light oil bearing slush. Bearings should be used immediately upon removal from protective packaging and handled carefully to prevent contamination prior to installation.
