Spherical roller bearings for vibratory applications
SKF’s explorer spherical roller bearings for vibratory applications provide ideal performance and longer service life compared with conventional types. Typical applications include vibrating screens, compactors, road rollers, and similar end-uses operating with high vibration and exposed to contamination, and/or poor lubrication conditions. The bearings additionally are designed to accommodate very heavy radial and axial loads suiting applications where misalignment or shaft deflections may occur. They extend bearing service life several times longer than other spherical roller bearings under typical heavy-duty conditions, lower operating temperatures for cooler and longer running, improve resistance to wear and contamination, perform excellently in high speeds, and reduce risks of fretting corrosion and induced axial preload. The bearings further can extend re-lubrication intervals to reduce maintenance costs and improve safety.
