Energy efficient bearings
ERIKS Industrial Services Limited
SKF energy efficient spherical roller bearings exhibit at least 30%
less friction and corresponding reduced energy consumption,
considerably lower bearing temperature, extended grease life and
extended relubrication intervals. Five sizes of open bearings are the
first to be introduced for industrial ventilation fan applications as
part of the total SKF energy efficient solution for fans. Additional
sizes will be offered based on customer demand.
The first SKF energy efficient cylindrical roller bearings to be
introduced are of the NJ series, which are designed to handle axial
loads in one direction. Compared to the current SKF standard NJ series
bearing, the new SKF energy efficient cylindrical roller bearings
exhibit a friction reduction of at least 30% in axial loaded
applications and have a higher dynamic load rating. These new ultra-low
friction bearings are intended for a wide range of applications,
initially for industrial and wind energy transmissions.
