SKF extreme temperature bearings operate at 350°C without relubrication

14 July 2013

SKF extreme temperature bearings, feature a graphite cage that lubricates the bearing up to 350°C without the need for relubrication.

Bearing service life in high temperature applications can be dramatically increased by using graphite lubricated extreme temperature bearings. In an example involving a cooling bed for sheet metal manufacture, bearing service life was increased by a factor of three.

In such an application a single bearing of this kind can save up to 4,6kg of CO2e and 1.5kg of grease per year.

A cooling bed, equipped with 5,000 such bearings can save 7.5 tonnes of grease and 23 tonnes of CO2e per year, which is equivalent to an 82 percent reduction in climate impact in the case of grease-lubricated deep groove ball bearings.

These calculations are based on both bearing and grease savings.
