Oil seals help to prevent lubricants from escaping the bearings and stop harmful contaminants from entering machinery. The consequences of contamination in bearings are often overlooked. When dirt or debris is allowed to contaminate the lubricant, significant wear can occur that might adversely affect machine operation. Conversely, when bearings operate in a non-contaminated environment, they will last much longer.
INA are a part of the Schaeffler Group and are a market-leading manufacturer of bearings, seals, and engine components. INA products are known for being high-quality and durable. INA produce oil seals that are used in a vast number of applications including electric motors, agricultural machinery, motorcycle forks, and mining plants - and in numerous industries, including shipping and manufacturing. Simply Bearings is a proud stockist of a number of INA products.
Here at Simply Bearings, we stock two main varieties of INA seals: nitrile rubber seals, and Polyurethane oil seals.
Nitrile rubber seals act as a crucial barrier between the bearing position and contaminants/spray water. They also prevent grease and lubricant being lost from within and allow for high-circumferential speeds. They can be used at temperatures from as low as -30c all the way up to 110c and are compatible with shaft diameters from 8mm to 80mm. These nitrile rubber seals have a steel reinforcement which helps to stiffen the ring, enhancing durability. Nitrile rubber seals have good tensile strength, anti-abrasion properties, resistance to some acids and alkalis, and some flame retardancy.
