Seize-resistant bearings for conveyor idle rollers
Improve energy efficiency and belt lifeThe percentage of seized idlers and the increase in power consumption has been shown to have a 1 to 10 relationship. For example, a 5% rate of seized or near-seized idlers would demand an additional 50% of power at the conveyor drive!
Designed to prevent these seizures and help control the resulting energy losses, the SKF seize-resistant bearing is a single row deep groove ball bearing. Featuring a special cage design and raceway control, the bearing will continue to rotate and accommodate a load under relatively high levels of contamination, without high frictional moment.
Along with enabling the use of a low-friction rubbing seal, SKF seize-resistant bearings also help:
- Reduce belt tension
- Reduce power consumption
- Reduce operating costs
- Extend belt life
- Reduce risk of fire
