SKF Explorer bearing sets for compressors

Optimizing performance for twin screw applications

Angular contact ball bearing
Developed to help minimize adjustment of rotor head clearance, SKF Explorer bearing sets for compressors enable faster, easier mounting and improved performance. Pre-assembled and ready-to-mount, compressor bearing sets enable very high running speeds and P5 running and P6 dimensional accuracy. Individual special matched sets feature just 50% of standard bore tolerance, and include:

Single row angular contact ball bearing sets with different contact angles
Featuring 30°/15° contact angles, SKF Explorer single row angular contact ball bearing sets enable higher speeds and less sliding. Optional, additional lubrication slots in the outer ring enable circulation of the lubrication-oil and lower operating temperatures.

Four-point contact ball bearing and single row angular contact ball bearing sets
With just two bearings rather than three, QJ & SRACBB sets can handle high axial forces in the predominant axial direction as well as reverse axial forces from the opposite direction.

Four-point contact ball bearing and cylindrical roller bearing sets
These bearing sets make shimming for the adjustment of the sensitive twin screw compressor rotor head clearance easier and more reliable.
