Oil-lubricated rolling bearings
Design and performance flexibility
Oil-lubricated rolling bearings from SKF can help boost operational and bottom-line performance for low and high speed shafts in gear drive and direct drive compressors.
For systems in development that will use an oil-refrigerant mixture as lubricant, the bearings will deliver many of the same high-speed, high-efficiency benefits of a permanent magnet motor/variable speed drive system. In gear-driven systems, the bearings can be integrated in the high-speed output shaft.
Operating benefits include:
- Better energy
- Volumetric efficiency
