Low friction SKF Explorer deep groove ball bearings

Low friction SKF Explorer deep groove ball bearings
Conveyor operators are increasingly looking for ways to reduce energy consumption and thus operating cost. Low friction SKF Explorer deep groove ball bearings offer interesting potential to reduce friction between the belt and idle rollers.

With bearings being a relatively small share of the construction costs of a conveyor, the benefits are accounted for during conveyor operations. Taking into account the sheer number and operating hours of idle rollers in bulk conveyors, even a small energy saving may offer significant cost reductions.

Low friction SKF Explorer deep groove ball bearings may also offer benefits to web transport systems where reduced torque is desired.
