SKF self-aligning bearing system: oil lubrication
Today’s best solution for shaft misalignment
Today, the SKF self-aligning bearing system offers a much better solution. Incorporating an SKF Explorer spherical roller bearing in the locating position and a CARB® toroidal roller bearing in the non-locating position, this system accommodates misalignment. The CARB bearing handles shaft elongation virtually without friction.
SONL housings for oil lubricationWhen using the SKF self-aligning bearing system for oil-lubricated fan shaft bearing applications, we recommend our SONL series standard bearing housings. While primarily designed for oil bath lubrication, SONL housings can also be used for circulating oil lubrication. Combining the SKF self-aligning bearing system with SONL housings offers several benefits:
- Higher speeds and extended lubrication intervals, resulting from less heat generation in the bearing system
- Reduced energy consumption for maximum pressure and airflow
- Extended bearing service life
- Increased reliability
