The Sealmaster time-saving axial groove mounted ball bearing is available in both a medium 2 7/16” and up, as well as standard 2 11/16” and up shaft sizes. The namesake axial groove that runs the entire length of the inner ring bore allows for easier bearing removal, providing clearance from the burr created by the setscrew that is used to lock the bearing to the shaft.

The reduction in shaft damage eliminates extended downtime and reduces additional costs to repair or replace the shaft before reuse.
