Ensuring Optimal Performance for your Vehicles

High-Grade Steel for High Mileage and Load Capacity

The Wheel Bearings (PW) are made with 100Cr6 alloy steel (AISI – SAE 52100), with a hardness of 60-65 HRC. This ensures that they meet and exceed the technical requirements of axial and radial load and bending moments. They also have internal radial clearance C3 for high speeds. Double row taper roller bearings have a higher load capacity, making them ideal for heavy-duty applications.

Premium Grease and Optimized Seals

The Wheel Bearings (PW) are sealed and lubricated for life, which means they do not require preventive maintenance. The premium grease used in these bearings guarantees excellent performance in conditions of high and low temperatures, as well as in dry, humid, and watery environments. The optimized seals reduce the risk of contamination and keep the grease inside, ensuring a long lifespan for the bearings.

Integration of Magnetic Encoder or ABS Sensor

Many of the Wheel Bearings (PW) come with integrated magnetic encoders or ABS sensors, depending on the application. This integration reduces the weight of the component and provides accurate measurements of wheel speed, contributing to a safer and smoother ride.

Full Kit Versions Available for Easy Installation

PFI Bearings offers many of the Wheel Bearings (PW) as full kits, providing all the necessary accessories for a complete assembly. This simplifies the installation process and ensures that all components work together seamlessly.
