Reliable rotation for the world's dirtiest jobs
Conveyors and material handling equipment used in aggregate, pulp and paper, and metals applications are subjected to extremely harsh environments. Unfortunately, most mounted tapered roller bearings are not up to the challenge. Unplanned stops occur regularly in these punishing conditions, resulting in devastating production and productivity losses. The most frequent cause of downtime is bearing seal failure.
SKF has developed a mounted tapered roller bearing with sealing performance that’s exponentially better than the competition. In fact, recent testing has proven that SKF mounted tapered roller bearings with CR Seals are perfect for use in these harsh operating environments. The seals in these Type E bearings from SKF withstood over 600 hours of mud slurry testing without contamination ingress – whereas competitive bearings showed signs of contamination at 50 hours or less.
