This RBC Heim RF122214AP flanged ball bearing is single sealed and has a 0.75" inside diameter, a 1.375 outside diameter, and a 0.438 width. This single row ball bearing is suitable for applications that support radial loads. This bearing's inner and outer races are made of carbon steel for durability and resistance to deformity under heavy loads. A rubber seal on one side of the bearing protects against coarse contaminants and allows for lubrication applied in place. This bearing has case-hardened bearing quality steel ball bearings for optimum wear resistance. This flanged deep groove ball bearing is suitable as a replacement bearing for wheel hubs, pulleys and conveyor rollers.
Rolling bearings use rolling elements to maintain the separation between moving parts to reduce rotational friction and support radial and axial loads. These elements can be one of the following types: ball, cylindrical, spherical, barrel, needle, spindle, or tapered. All rolling bearings are open, shielded, or sealed. Sealed bearings are lubricated with oil or grease in the bearing factory, while open and shielded bearings are meant to be lubricated in place, with periodic reapplication of lubrication, based on use. The shield protects the working parts of the bearing from environmental debris that may be introduced and could reduce the ball bearing speed and lifespan. Rolling bearings are used in a range of applications from agricultural machinery to conveying equipment, robotics, dental equipment, elevators, rolling mills, ship rudder shafts, and aggregate crushers, among others.
