SKF self-aligning bearing system: grease lubrication

Today’s best solution for shaft misalignment

Separate bearing positions – preferably self-aligning bearings to handle shaft misalignment – offer the most economical fan shaft bearing solution. In the past, the only way to accommodate axial expansion of the shaft was to enable the bearing in the non-locating position to slide in the housing.

Today, the SKF self-aligning bearing system offers a much better solution. Incorporating an SKF Explorer spherical roller bearing in the locating position and a CARB® toroidal roller bearing in the non-locating position, this system accommodates misalignment. The CARB bearing handles shaft elongation virtually without friction.
