Timken® Type-E tapered roller bearing housed units feature double-lip seals and locking collars
that protect against water and other contaminants. This double-lip seal design blocks debris and
retains grease better than single-lip or triple-lip seals, according to Timken 2012 laboratory tests.
Its cast-iron exterior includes a corrosion-resistant electro-coat finish for the housing and collar,
a more durable shield than industry-standard powder coating or black oxide. Set screws with
nylon patches reduce back-out, even in rigorous applications.
Premium Timken® tapered roller bearings inside Type-E housings are manufactured with advanced
technology that results in longer predicted useful bearing life than other housed units with standard
bearings. Designed with optimized bearing profiles and improved surface finishes, Timken tapered
roller bearings operate efficiently within the housing.
