Bearing surface treatment

Prevent lubricant contamination in transmissions

In the power transmission of a tractor, the bearing lubricant can be contaminated with metallic and other particles causing early bearing failure due to fatigue and wear. The SKF solution? A surface treatment of the bearing rings.

The SKF surface treatment process drastically improves the performance of standard through-hardened SKF bearings. The new surface reduces the edge stresses in case of over-rolling of hard particles, leading to higher bearing reliability, extended service life and ultimately, reduced total costs. The bearings also provide high resistance to contamination and perform well in poor lubrication conditions.
