Deep groove ball bearings are the most commonly used bearing in the world. Typically used in household appliances, automation control, fans, conveyors, and office machinery.

These bearings are also available with phenolic retainers for higher speed applications. They are normally supplied with shields or seals to prevent contamination and to help retain bearing lubrication.
