SKF Energy Efficient deep groove ball bearings

Optimized to increase service life and reduce energy use

As part of the SKF EnCompass Field Performance Programme, SKF Energy Efficient (E2) bearings have been optimized for reduced energy use, increased service life and reduced total cost of ownership in many industrial applications.

SKF E2 deep groove ball bearings can provide more than twice the service life, while reducing frictional losses in the bearing by at least 30% when compared to the same size SKF Explorer bearing (Diagram 1). This results in energy savings over the life of the application. It also reduces operating temperature (Diagram 2) and helps extend grease life (Diagram 3).

A wider range of energy-saving, low-friction options

With bore sizes from 5 to 80 mm, SKF offers an extended catalogue range of shielded and sealed SKF E2 deep groove ball bearings in order to cover a larger range of application requirements, e.g. enabling them to be used on vertical shafts as well as other applications where contamination is a real concern.
