Thin section bearings get higher ratings

Thin section bearings get higher ratings

A new, more accurate method of projecting bearing life has confirmed that the ratings of many Kaydon Reali-Slim bearings exceed previously published figures, by five times in some cases. Kaydon Corporation bearings are supplied in the UK by RA Rodriguez.


The dynamic capacity improvements for Reali-Slim bearings vary with type and size with increases for Type X, the four point contact bearing, ranging from 31 percent to 77 percent. As part of the validation process Kaydon also tested several competitors' thin-section bearings. The actual dynamic capacity of those bearings was found to be up to 72 percent lower than their published ratings.
