New bearings use 30% less energy

New bearings use 30% less energy
SKF has launched a new family of energy efficient performance class bearings. The innovative SKF E2 bearings have been specifically engineered and manufactured to reduce frictional moment by 30% or more beyond the already efficient SKF standard bearings.

By exhibiting ultra low friction, the new bearings enable manufacturers to build greater energy efficiency into their equipment, reducing the total cost of ownership for end users. Because the bearings are dimensionally interchangeable with ISO standard components, conventional bearings can be upgraded simply and quickly to reduce the energy consumption of existing equipment.  

A variety of SKF E2 bearing types will be available off-the-shelf in common sizes, starting with single row deep groove ball bearings. These ultra low friction bearings offer an excellent way to reduce mechanical friction in light-to-normal loaded applications, such as electric motors, pumps, and conveyors, cutting energy consumption as a result.

Furthermore, as the new SKF E2 bearings run cooler than standard bearings at equivalent loads and speeds, additional benefits include longer grease life, and extended relubrication intervals, reducing maintenance and costs further. SKF's family of energy efficient bearings are designed for use in a wide range of industrial equipment, including motors, fans, pumps and gearboxes, in sectors ranging from renewable power generation to transportation.
