SKF extends the JIS compliant ball bearing units with its new 300 series for contaminated environments
The new UC 300 ball bearing units from SKF feature superior sealing and stronger locking and are interchangeable with all JIS (Japanese Industrial Standards) housings.
The new UC 300 is ideal for use in highly contaminated industrial environments, where bearing life can often be shortened through the ingress of process materials such as mud, dust, wood chips or water. To overcome these problems, the UC 300 series is equipped with field-proven sealing technology. It also has asolid base design of housing to minimise areas that might otherwise trap dirt or moisture.
When bearings are subject to systemic vibration, the results can include increased shaft imbalance, misalignment and loosening of locking mechanisms. The UC 300 series addresses these problems with its robust construction and high strength locking system. Designed to cope with operations characterised by higher peak loads and lower rotation speeds, each unit also features a grub screw locking system set at an angle of 62°, which gives even better holding power.
- Whatever their need, engineers can now find proven, high-quality and reliable ball-bearing units from a single, quickly accessible, and trusted source, says Jerome Pommereul, SKF Product Manager.
- Thanks to their greater contamination and vibration resistance, they will last longer, maximise the performance of rotating equipment and minimise productivity losses due to bearing failure. Customers will also see cost savings through fewer replacements and repairs.
UC 300 series units are available with bores ranging up to 100 mm. Typical applications will include conveyors, belt pulley and chain transmissions, and cranes. They will be of particular benefit in areas such as material handling, agricultural, construction machinery, HVAC systems, textile industry, metals, and mining.

One of the main differences between a cost-efficient fleet that can deliver and one that can’t seem to keep up and control its costs is proper asset management. However, one part that often falls through the cracks in asset management is maintenance. Maintenance remains one of your most crucial and expensive operational costs and one you have to stay on top of if you want to avoid mistakes and surprise costs.
