SKF Bearing Current Analysis

Avoid the side-effects of frequency converters

In order to reduce energy consumption in buildings, variable speed fans are preferred to reduce air flow during times when less fresh air is needed. However, if a frequency converter is used, the risk of electrical current leakage increases, which can damage the bearings.
