A single, double or a triple – what’s better?
Well in the instance of bearings, you can’t go past the Challenge Triple Seal Bearing.
There are many benefits — the obvious being less downtime — which reflects directly in higher profits. The Triple Seal bearing lasts longer and keeps out both dust and water.
Triple-sealed bearings feature a secure bearing seal with three lips. This special seal offers reliable dust proofing and waterproofing superior to those of standard bearings.
A bearing life longer than that of a standard bearing unit means extended maintenance intervals, greatly reduced maintenance costs (of inspection, re-lubrication, replacement etc), and increased availability of machinery.
The Challenge triple-sealed bearing unit replaces conventional covered bearing units in certain operating conditions, greatly decreasing the cost of bearing units. In addition, if the bearing cover is not required, the will bearing a narrower profile so more compact.
These triple-sealed bearings are held on the driven shaft with Challenge’s unique balled set screw, which features an embedded ball in its tip. Compared with knurled cup point or cup-point set screws, the balled set screw provides much greater resistance to loosening, as it does not readily loosen due to vibration or impact.
Challenge bearings conform to the JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) for UC-type bearings. It is not only ready to use as a relubricatable bearing, but it also is interchangeable with the conventional bearing units of other manufacturers. It therefore serves as a ready replacement for existing bearing units.
