A symptom of several possible problems
For electric motors, the root cause of excessive noise and vibration levels is often related to inadequate lubrication, poor mounting procedures, improper bearing arrangements, or inefficient cooling. Whatever the cause, high noise and vibration increase energy consumption and can cause:
- Premature equipment failures
- Costly maintenance
- Unplanned downtime
- Production losses
Smoother, quieter operation with SKF
Ideal for use in electric motors and generators, SKF Low Noise deep groove ball bearings can help deliver exceptionally quiet bearing operation, for much quieter motors.
