The new Schaeffler High Efficiency Ball Bearing with Centrifugal Disc combines the benefit of an open bearing and a sealed one. The integrated patented centrifugal disc reduces splashing losses, features no sealing friction and prevents the bearing from contamination. The High Efficiency Ball Bearing has up to 80 % less friction than a sealed ball bearing and even up to 60 % less friction than an open ball bearing. The High Efficiency Ball Bearing with Centrifugal Disc is part of the X-life bearing family. This offers an increased lifetime up to 10 times compared to an open ball bearing and up to 2 times compared to a sealed ball bearing. The High Efficiency Ball Bearing can be used in applications with oil lubrication. Overall, the High Efficiency Ball Bearing is a simple and smart solution with a big impact on the total performance, as well as on the overall efficiency of the application.
