SKF Explorer spherical roller bearings

Sealed for protection and more

E design spherical roller bearing
Bearings in mining machinery operate in harsh conditions and may be exposed to heavy loads, shock loads, vibration and contaminants. With their high load-carrying capacity and low operating friction, SKF Explorer spherical roller bearings can handle all of it and more.

The sealed variant of SKF Explorer spherical roller bearings keeps lubricant inside the bearing and contaminants out. They can also reduce or eliminate the need for expensive, space-consuming external Taconite housing seals.

From drills to kilns and conveyors, SKF Explorer spherical roller bearings can help cut costs and extend bearing service life for machinery at every production stage of mining and cement manufacturing.

SKF Explorer performance class upgrade

All SKF spherical roller bearings have been upgraded to the new SKF Explorer performance class specifications, featuring a combination of high-quality steel and an improved heat treatment process. The result: a superior balance between hardness and toughness, enabling up to twice the service life as the original SKF Explorer. Benefits include:
  • Increased uptime
  • Improved reliability
  • Resistance to contamination
  • Higher productivity levels
  • Reduced noise and vibration levels
  • Excellent wear resistance
