SKF Shaft Grounding Ring Kits TKGR series
Prevent bearing failures due to electrical discharge currents
SKF Shaft Grounding Ring Kits have been developed as a solution to help prevent bearing failures due to electrical discharge currents, which can occur when variable frequency drives are used to control AC motors. Specifically designed for retrofitting on existing IEC frame size industrial electric motors, SKF Shaft Grounding Ring Kits reduce the need to spend time, effort and cost in replacing existing bearings.
The SKF Shaft Grounding Rings Kits (TKGR series) consist of the following:
- Shaft grounding ring with an aluminium brush holder which helps ensure that the conductive brushes are in contact with the surface of the motor shaft
- Four different sets of mounting brackets (4 brackets per set); which virtually assures that the SGR can be fitted to almost all IEC frame motors
