The Baldor Dodge SC/SCMED Extreme Duty Ball Bearings are manufactured in the USA in Rogersville, Tennessee and offer an extended life span for tough industrial uses.
For optimal performance and maximum service length, you need to lubricate rolling bearings. Lubrication is essential as it will affect the life, noise, speed, torque, grease migration out gassing, temperature and corrosion of the ball or roller bearings.
Bearings are used to help reduce the friction in rotating machinery. In rotating machinery the contact of metal on metal produces large amounts of friction. This friction causes wear and tear of the metal that degrades the metal over time.

Regular maintenance goes a long way in avoiding breakdowns and extending the life of your rotating machinery. But sometimes equipment fails. Often, bearing failure is the culprit. Precision ball bearings are designed to last a long time. Assuming the application is correct, for maximum longevity, the bearings must be installed correctly, lubricated and maintained.
