Bearing Information for Common Material Handling Tire and Wheel Applications

Single Row Radial Ball Bearing

Front

Back

Code

NSK – DDU

Timken – PP

SKF – 2RS

NTN – LLU

Main Function, Benefit, and Concern

• Non-Greaseable (NG)  

•Pre-packed grease contained within rubber seals

• Maintenance Free

• Rubber seals have full contact on both inner and outer race

• Rubber seals heat up and can melt down if used in high speed – leaking grease

• Rubber seals are sensitive to chemical attack – special rubber seals are required for some environments

• Grease cannot be refilled to replace deteriorated old grease

Where Used

• Fork, Outrigger and Stabilizing Caster Load Wheel

• Single direction of force (radial load) – limited thrust load capacity

• Low-Medium Speed and NonContinuous Run

• Clean facility, frequent washdown or wet conditions

Code

NSK – Z

Timken – D

SKF – Z

NTN – Z

Main Function, Benefit, and Concern

• Greaseable (G)

• Maintenance Required 

• Metal shield does not make sealed contact – no heat buildup in high speed run

• Shield does not completely prevent grease leakage but allows grease to effectively fill the bearing during maintenance

• Shield prevents debris from entering into the bearing

Where Used

• Fork, Outrigger and Stabilizing Caster Load Wheel

• Single direction of force (radial load) – limited thrust load capacity

• Long and continuous run

Code

NSK – DU

Timken – P

SKF – RS

NTN – LU

Main Function, Benefit, and Concern

• Greaseable (G) – for specific design only

• Requires extra hole in axle to release trapped air while greasing

• Almost maintenance free when used in low speed application

• Maintenance is required if used in high speed application due to leaking grease

• Rubber seals are sensitive to chemical attack – special rubber seals are required for some environments

Where Used

• Fork, Outrigger and Stabilizing Caster Load Wheel

• Single direction of force (radial load) – limited thrust load capacity

• Can be used in long and continuous ru

Code 

 No Typical Coding Pattern

 

 

Main Function, Benefit, and Concern

• Recommended only in Greaseable (one metal shield) configuration

• The inner lip/race acts as a spacer on the outside of the wheel eliminating extra components and offers a quicker and easier wheel change

• Same function as nonshouldered one shield ball bearing

Where Used

• Same usage as non-shouldered one shield ball bearing

• Faster wheel replacement

Single Row Cup and Cone

Code 

 No Typical Coding Pattern

 

 

Main Function, Benefit, and Concern

• Designed for multi-direction forces found mostly in 4th wheel casters (CL-II trucks) or drive tire

• Maintenance Required

• Require bearing cap to contain grease

• Require locking element (lock nut or snap ring) to prevent the cup from separating from cone

• Offers higher load capacity in the same size as ball bearing due to tapered roller elements which provides larger contact area

Where Used

• Able to accept multi-directional force (radial load and thrust load)

• CL-II Caster wheels or Drive tire

Loading External Forces

External Force

Type

Radial Loading

Is a force perpendicular to the axis of rotation (axle), such as weight (most Load wheels)

Thrust (Axial) Loading

A force parallel to the axis of rotation (axle), such as side impact or cornering

Angular Loading

A combination of both radial and thrust loading resulting in an angular force acting on the bearing  (most Drive tires and CL-II Caster wheels)
