SKF has developed energy-saving bearings that can save energy by 30%

SKF group, which has entered its 100th anniversary this year, recently announced that while product quality is inseparable, it also has continuously improved requirements. It has successfully developed a new energy-saving bearing series, which can reduce energy consumption by about 30% compared with ISO products. It is expected to be put into production in the second half of this year

the new series of energy-saving bearings include the two most commonly used bearing products, which combine the advantages of both sides - tapered roller bearings and deep groove ball bearings. Among them, the new tapered roller bearings will mainly correspond to those applications where the power consumption exceeds 1 MW, such as railways, heavy industrial transmission, shipbuilding, conveyor belts, extruders, etc. The outer diameter of the products initially put into production ranges from 200 to 600 mm, and will be first applied to wind turbines. It is reported that through design improvements, it can achieve an average energy-saving effect of 30%. These improvements involve many links, such as surface modeling, chute shape and geometric structure, box made of special polymers, and roller optimization

the new deep groove ball bearing can also save at least 30% of energy consumption in most applications. The initial products are mainly used for light load. The star models that actually use this process also have many applications, such as motor drive. Its outer diameter will be relatively small, and the energy-saving effect is mainly due to the optimization of internal geometric structure, the box made of new polymers and the use of grease with lower friction

SKF said that the energy-saving demonstration project of this new series of bearings was supported by the European Commission's "2006 life environment plan", which supports a variety of new methods and technologies that help solve environmental problems
