SKF XL hybrid bearings
Designed and developed for large turbines
SKF XL hybrid deep groove ball bearings help tidal energy array developers insulate turbines from electric currents while providing high reliability and excellent performance.
SKF hybrid bearings provide superior grease life, especially in situations with difficult operating conditions. Hybrid bearings outperform all-steel bearings in terms of wear-resistance when operating under contaminated conditions with poor lubrication.
Tests also have proven the superior behaviour of silicon nitride when contacting metal raceways under pure sliding conditions, thanks to the smoother surface and the higher hardness of the ceramic rolling elements.
