The Compact TBU a new concept in axlebox bearing units

A modern railway system requires reliable operation over a long period of time. This demands first-quality components. SKFs continued development of components has resulted in the introduction of a Compact Tapered Roller Bearing Unit (Compact TBU) for railway applications. The Compact TBU is pre-lubricated,sealed and ready to mount. Its design elements reduce contamination, resulting in longer service life, longer maintenance intervals and improved performance and safety. The compact design also permits shorter axle length, reducing axle bending.
