For one lignite mine operator, running operations around the clock to extract 600 million tons of material a year was taking a toll on their machinery. By switching to SKF sealed spherical roller bearings, they were able to double the service life of their conveyor bearings and cut down on operating costs.
Service life increased from 2 years to 4 years
Mounting time reduced by 50%
Greasing costs eliminated
A sugar plant that faced premature bearing failures every milling season was incurring repeated maintenance and repair costs. By installing SKF Explorer spherical roller bearings in their critical fans, they were able to eliminate unplanned downtime and save nearly $50,000 a year.
4 milling seasons, no breakdowns
$47,000 saved annually
A sugar mill needed to increase the capacity of their shredder by 10%, and they needed a reliable bearing that could sustain the load. With an SKF spherical roller bearing, they could increase the shredder shaft diameter for increased loads, minimize downtime and achieve an annual savings of more than $150,000.
$41,850 saved in bearing costs
$109,350 saved in maintenance and repair
A paper manufacturer suffered from premature bearing failures due to a challenging environment contaminated by wood and dust. Bearings that were expected to have three years of service life would fail after only one year in operation. With two new SKF sealed spherical roller bearings for vibrating applications, their solution is still running after three-and-a-half years in operation.
More than 3x service life
-40% annual grease consumption
-59° Fahrenheit decrease in running temperature
For one mining operation, catastrophic bearing failures caused facility shutdowns every two years that would cost the operation $52 million in lost production. By using SKF sealed spherical roller bearings with heavy duty seals, they were able to increase the mean time between failures to more than four years, creating a customer value of $26 million a year.
2x mean time between failures
$26 million per year in customer value
