SKF Y-bearing units with composite housings
Reduce total cost of ownership with SKF composite housings
A superior housing
SKF composite housings are made of a glass fibre reinforced polyamide material (PA6). These lightweight housings resist a variety of chemicals and diluted acids.
Housing highlights are:
- Excellent corrosion resistance
- Tolerant of high and low temperatures
- Dimensionally interchangeable with cast iron units
- Excellent UV resistance
- Available with end covers
The sealed Y-bearing is pre-lubricated for the life of the bearing with a lithium/calcium base grease. This long lasting, water-resistant grease combined with the highly effective integral seals and high performance design of appropriately selected SKF Y-bearing units can provide long, reliable service life without the costs and environmental issues of relubrication.
Sealing solutions, bearing designs and materials
Assembled, ready-to-mount, SKF Y-bearing units with a composite housing are available as standard with different Y-bearing designs with different sealing solutions. For an overview of the available combinations, refer to the following tables:
SKF composite housings can be assembled with all appropriately sized SKF Y-bearing designs. This includes all locking methods, all material options (e.g. zinc-coated rings and stainless steel bearings) and all seal options.
