SKF Energy Efficient Y-bearings and units
Optimized to reduce energy use and increase service life
As part of the SKF EnCompass Field Performance Programme, the expanded SKF Energy Efficient (E2) Y-bearings and Y-bearing units line offers cost-effective solutions for reduced friction, reduced operating temperature and longer service life compared to standard Y-bearings.
SKF E2 Y-bearings are characterized by a frictional moment that is at least 50% lower when compared to the same-sized standard Y-bearing (Diagram 1). Due to the reduced friction, the bearings run at up to 30 °C (55 °F) cooler than standard bearings (Diagram 2). This extends grease life and service life, where grease life is limiting (Diagram 3).
