Tape getting stuck? Triple Sealed Bearings

The triple-sealed bearing is provided with a bearing seal having three lips. The special seal offers reliable dust and water-proofing performance superior to standard bearings and offers longer bearing life.

Although the high-torque, triple-sealed bearing unit boasts the best
sealing performance, it should be used only at low speed, because
the bearing generates a high friction torque. The low-torque triple-
sealed bearing unit is identical to the high-torque sealed-bearing
unit but incorporates improved seal lips and generates lower frictional torque. Thus, it can be used under ordinary operating conditions.
