Wheel Bearings

Wheel Bearings

Wheel bearings are simply a set of steel balls kept in place by a metal ring called a race. Their job is to enable the wheel – or wherever else they're attached – to spin with as little friction as possible. On a vehicle, they sit between the axle and the wheel, enabling the wheel and hub to spin freely on the axle. Heat and water are enemies of a wheel bearing, and even though most modern wheel bearings are sealed, damage to that seal can allow water to enter, leading to a loss of lubrication, increase in heat, and premature failure.

Wheel Bearing by Moog

Wheel Bearing by Moog

MOOG brings you a full range of Wheel Bearings
When a car needs brake work, the wheel-end bearings should be checked. Each bearing consists of rollers, a cage and inner and outer raceways and every part must be inspected for discoloration, etching, spalling, misalignment and fractures. MOOG offers the most complete wheel bearing range in the market. The innovative design of these direct replacement parts makes them strong and anti-friction, ensuring a safe, smooth steering performance for many more miles.

How is high performance achieved?
A premium seal design prevents contamination and protects bearing life. Each steel bearing is manufactured to ultra-precise tolerances for minimal vibration and longer life. Crowned raceways and rollers prevent misalignment and the rollers are precision-matched to reduce vibration. The bearings are enhanced through a sophisticated heat treatment process for maximum material hardness and extended life.

Quick-look benefits:
 LONG-LASTING: Made of premium materials and put through severe durability tests
 STRONG: Extra resistant to heavy loads and pollutants
 CONVENIENT: Comprehensive range from Generation 0 up to Generation 3 bearings
 EASY: All hardware is included for speedy installation 

TIP: signs of wheel-end bearing damage include vibration, noise and irregular brake pedal response.

Wheel End Seals

Axle Seals

Seals in wheel bearings are key in determining the life of the unit. If the seal allows external contaminants to enter the bearing or lubricant to escape from the bearing, then premature failure of the unit will result.

SKF wheel end seals providing oil and grease sealing offer enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and fluid environments, performance and longer life under virtually all driving and road conditions.

SKF's custom design capabilities, testing procedures and extensive production experience allow development of the most advanced designs to keep out road contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings.
For wheel end applications we can provide seals for:
- Cars and light trucks
- Heavy duty trucks and off road applications
- Motorcycles and recreational vehicles

Wheel Bearing by SKF

Angular Contact Ball Bearings

For racing car hub bearing unit (HBU) applications SKF manufactures high precision thin section angular contact ball bearings (ACBB). The bearings can have custom designs with bespoke ring dimensions and special internal geometry. The bearings can be supplied as a matched preloaded set. Using SKF modelling programs the internal bearing design can be optimized to suit all application conditions. SKF can also provide their customers with tailored solutions by using special materials such as peek, silicon nitride rolling elements and Viton seals etc.
