UPGRADED ROLLER BEARING RANGE
06 November 2012
At Hillhead 2012 SKF will highlight its upgraded SKF Explorer selfaligning roller bearings alongside a further range of innovative products
that bring major benefits to the mining and construction industries, including the new SE bearing housing and the SKF Idler Sound Monitor Kit.
The upgraded SKF Explorer range sees the relaunch of a market-leading product line that is now expanded across a greater number of individual products. All standard spherical roller bearings, spherical roller thrust bearings and CARB bearings now benefit from upgraded manufacturing process in bearing steel and enhanced component design, improving the ability of SKF Explorer self-aligning roller bearings to resist the heavy levels of contamination present in mining and construction.
To accommodate the increased loadcarrying capacity of its bearings, SKF has constructed 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. Stand F2
