Sealed bearings come ready to fit and do not require greasing. Usually a large 1 piece bearing that is tightly fitted in to the hub, secured by a circlip. We recommend using a press when removing and fitting sealed bearings. European Axles were the first to introduce sealed bearingsbut they are are becoming more popular in the UK.Sealed bearings are also known as Sealed For Life (SFL), meaning that the unit is sealed and can not be maintained. The most common use for a sealed bearing is on the following drums and trailers;
- Al-ko drums
- Knott SFL (P, X, Y series) hubs and drums
- Ifor Williams manufactured after 1992
- Some peak, Indespension and Meridith and eyre
- Erde and daxara (some)
Most Sealed bearings need to be torqued correctly to offer maximum bearing life.
Taper Roller Bearings
Trailers still commonly use taper roller bearings. It is easyto maintain and inspect taper roller bearings. Although it is possible to change taper roller bearings without a press it is easier with a press. When tightening taper roller bearings werecommended to torque to 70Nm. Rotate the wheel at least 1 full revolution then loosen off and tighten finger tight. Over tightening will destroy the bearings.
