Magnetic bearings

Non-contact performance benefits

As more facilities move from hydraulic to electromechanical systems, SKF magnetic bearings are making the transition a smooth one.

SKF magnetic bearings rotate with no surface contact, so there is virtually no bearing friction or wear. The simplified, hermetic design also eliminates the need for seals, and with them, the need for lubrication systems. SKF magnetic bearings run oil- and virtually maintenance-free in even the harshest operating environments. These bearings provide a cleaner solution that reduces the risk of environmental contamination.

Combining precision rotary motion with minimum vibration, SKF magnetic bearings offer a range of benefits:
  • Lubrication-free
  • Clean, contamination free
  • Reliability
  • Low vibration
  • High surface speed
  • Low energy consumption
  • Submerged operation
  • Built-in condition monitoring
