Scroll refrigerant compressors
Small units with big bearing challenges
While scroll compressors are generally small units, the bearings within them are exposed to many of the same conditions that affect bearings in larger compressors, including refrigerant gases, high speeds and heavy loads.
SKF can helpSKF bearing solutions for scroll compressors deliver the high running accuracy and reliability that these applications demand. See below to see how SKF deep groove ball bearings, cylindrical roller bearings and needle roller bearings can drive performance for refrigerant scroll compressors.
Cylindrical roller bearings
Optimized for greater operational reliability and insensitivity to misalignment
SKF plain bushings for compressors
Robust, virtually maintenance-free operation in corrosive conditions
Needle roller bearings
Big load-carrying capacity in a compact, cost-effective arrangement
