New from SKF is a range of bearing housings that is reported to boost load capacity and exploit the full service life potential of the incorporated bearings, improving performance while significantly reducing maintenance costs and downtime.
To accommodate the increased load carrying capacity of its bearings, SKF has constructed its new SE housings from a higher strength cast iron that can accommodate heavier loads. This, coupled with a stiffer, more robust design, also prevents the housing from becoming distorted by over- tightening of the attachment bolts.
The design of the SE housing also enables more cost effective and reliable lubrication; an effective grease guiding system allows relubrication from the side and applies grease directly to the bearing.
