Reduced maintenance

Lubrication is key

Man noting MCA measurements
Pump maintenance typically includes lubricating the bearings and monitoring the performance. Proper lubrication prevents excessive wear, shortened bearing service life, and costly premature bearing breakdowns.

Sealed bearing advantages

Pumps equipped with sealed, greased-for-life bearings are considered to be re-lubrication-free. SKF offers a range of sealed bearings that:
  • Increase mean time between failures
  • Reduce total costs
  • Support condition monitoring solutions

Lifetime solutions

Another key issue is the need to align pump service life with the life of the application. SKF can help optimize assemblies to offer a re-lubrication-free solution over the target life of the pump.
