SKF Explorer spherical roller thrust bearings

SKF Explorer spherical roller thrust bearings
Spherical roller thrust bearings are characterized by their self-aligning ability and very high load-carrying capacity. They are designed to accommodate axial load or combined axial and radial loads.

Invented by SKF and refined over the years, SKF spherical roller thrust bearings provide top-of-the-line performance. The majority of the SKF spherical roller bearings are made to the SKF Explorer specifications, providing
  • Very high load carrying capacity – both axially and radially
  • Highly wear-resistant bearing material
  • Very high running accuracy
  • Low friction

SKF Explorer performance class upgrade

Most of SKF Explorer spherical roller thrust bearings have been upgraded to the new SKF Explorer performance class specifications, featuring a combination of high-quality steel and an improved heat treatment process. The result: a superior balance between hardness and toughness, enabling up to twice the service life as the original SKF Explorer. 

Benefits of use include:

  • Increased uptime
  • Improved reliability
  • Resistance to contamination
  • Higher levels of productivity
  • Reduced noise and vibration levels
  • Excellent wear resistance
