Carrying a heavy load
Simply by carrying the bearing loads, bearing housings help extend bearing service life. But housing materials must be robust enough to resist deformation from frequent, heavy loads and shock loads. Housing bore diameter and roundness must fit the bearing precisely, or service life can be dramatically reduced.
Robust bearing support from SKF
SKF bearing housings enable excellent bearing performance. Bearings operate at lower temperatures, enabling extended re-lubrication intervals, reduced maintenance and longer bearing service life.
