SKF Passenger bearing 1,7 M km

Extend passenger train bearing maintenance intervals to 1.7 million km

Tapered roller bearing unit
With improved contact geometry and heat treatment, the new generation of tapered roller bearing units (TBU) for passenger trains from SKF is designed to go 1.7 million km between maintenance intervals, enabling bearing maintenance to be aligned with the longest wheelset maintenance intervals.

Plus, SKF calculations indicate a 40% increase in L10 bearing life compared to the previous SKF offer. The new TBUs are designed for 160-250 km/h EMU/DMU/passenger coach applications.
