What to consider when buying bearings
To save you time when sourcing your bearings we’ve put together some tips below to help you get started;
What application is it for?
It may sounds like an obvious question, but consider the application you need the bearing for - for example the environment it will be used in, dry, damp, dusty and so on will have an effect on the type of bearing you need. The temperature the bearing will be operating in also comes in to consideration, particularly high or lower operating temperatures will help us define the type of bearing you need - ensuring we supply you with the best possible product every time.
What kind of bearing do you need?
Bearings are more commonly open (the bearings are visible in their race), shielded (protected by a dust shield) or sealed (enclosed by a metal or rubber casing).
We can advise you on which type of bearing you will need, which will ensure you purchase the most reliable and safest solution for your particular application. Using the wrong type of bearing can be dangerous and expensive, we’ll help you choose the right product.
What quality of bearing suits your application?
Bearings come in a variety of quality levels, suitable for a variety of applications. For more high-precision specialist equipment you may need a higher grade bearing whereas cheaper or less important machinery may not require such as a high grade of bearing.
