Double shielded ball bearings are a type of bearing that has two shields, one on each side of the bearing. The shields are made of metal or plastic and help to keep dust, dirt, and other contaminants out of the bearing. This design feature not only provides extra protection, but it also extends the life of the bearing while improving its performance.
RS offer a great selection of high-quality double shielded ball bearings from industry-leading brands including FAG, SKF and BNL.
Our double shielded ball bearings are available as deep groove, angular contact, or radial types in a range of sizes and ratings.
Rubber Shielded Bearings: These bearings have rubber shields that are moulded into the bearing housing. Rubber shields are flexible and can absorb shock, making them well-suited for applications with vibration or shock loading.
Metal Shielded Bearings: These bearings have metal shields that are pressed into the bearing housing. Metal shields are more durable than rubber shields and can withstand higher temperatures.
Double shielded ball bearings are ideal for more challenging environments or where there is a greater risk of exposure to contaminants.
