Wheelset bearing

HI, I'm using shimano rs 010 wheelset. As I known this wheelset using ball bearings. If I wanna change the bearing to seal bearing if it possible?

It's possible for Campagnolo/Fulcrum hubs which use ball bearings but not possible for Shimano hubs.

Your hubs use loose bearings in a cup and cone configuration. They do no contain or accept "cartridge" bearings. You can disassemble them, clean the cup, cone and bearings, and at that point you can decide if you want to replace the bearings or use the old ones.
