Product Announcement from RBC Bearings
The 1600 Series™ bearings are precision ground on all surfaces with exceptional care given to the ball grooves. Careful heat treatment provides a uniform and exact degree of hardness for maximum life. Aball retainer, or separator, is used to increase the range of allowable speeds by reducing ball-to-ball contact friction. The 1600 Series™ radial bearings are available open, single or doubled shielded, or single or double sealed. Double sealed and double shielded bearings are supplied grease packed as standard.
Open and single closure bearings can be supplied greased on request.
