SKF Y-bearings

Virtually maintenance-free operation

SKF Y-bearings offer nearly maintenance-free performance in air-handling units. In applications where regreasing is not required, SKF Y-bearings can be mounted in a rubber ring – an advantage in ventilation fan applications.

The rubber ring is located between the bearing outer ring and housing to dampen vibrations and noise. A more cost-effective solution compared to cast iron pillow blocks, the rubber ring enables slight displacement of the bearings in their housings to accommodate minor shaft elongation or misalignment.
