Con­veyor so­lu­tions cut down­time – in­crease up­time

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MATERIALS HANDLING -

SKF pro­vides cost-ef­fec­tive so­lu­tions for vir­tu­ally all of the ro­tat­ing com­po­nents in to­day’s con­veyor sys­tems.

De­signed for the rig­or­ous de­mands of in­dus­try, each SKF so­lu­tion pro­vides spe­cific ben­e­fits that re­sult in less un­planned down­time, fewer re­pairs, and longer ser­vice in­ter­vals.

The SKF so­lu­tions are drop-in re­place­ments for your ex­ist­ing sys­tems to up­grade your lev­els of pro­duc­tiv­ity, and ul­ti­mately help in­crease your op­er­a­tion’s prof­itabil­ity.

Mounted prod­ucts – con­cen­tra bear­ings

Con­cen­tra ball and roller units are part of SKF’s ex­ten­sive line of ready-to-in­stall mounted prod­ucts fea­tur­ing a unique 360˚ grip con­nec­tor that ap­plies the right shaft force and in­ter­nal clear­ance ev­ery time.

This lock­ing tech­nol­ogy pro­vides longer ser­vice life by re­duc­ing vi­bra­tion, and fret­ting cor­ro­sion.

The bear­ings used in Con­cen­tra ball bear­ing units are based on SKF Y-bear­ings in YSP 2 SB se­ries. Th­ese bear­ings have a con­vex sphered out­side sur­face and is sealed on both sides with a highly ef­fec­tive stan­dard seal, which en­hances the seal­ing ef­fect with­out in­creas­ing fric­tion, and filled with a pre­mium grease.

If nec­es­sary, the bear­ing unit can be re­lu­bri­cated via a grease fit­ting in the hous­ing, although in many cases the bear­ings may be able to op­er­ate as “sealed for life” and there­fore main­te­nance free.

Food line se­ries

To meet the re­quire­ments of the food, bev­er­age and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal pro­cess­ing in­dus­tries, SKF has de­vel­oped a spe­cial range of Y-bear­ing units made from a ther­mo­plas­tic ma­te­rial ca­pa­ble of re­sist­ing cit­ric acids, cook­ing fats and most food and bev­er­age pro­cess­ing chem­i­cals.

The SKF Food Line Y-bear­ing units pro­vide sig­nif­i­cantly im­proved ser­vice life over con­ven­tional cast iron bear­ing units un­der cor­ro­sive and wash-down con­di­tions and are pre-lu­bri­cated for life with a non-toxic food grade grease, ca­pa­ble of of­fer­ing re­lu­bri­ca­tion free op­er­a­tion.

Bear­ings – ex­plorer spher­i­cal roller bear­ings

In re­sponse to the everde­mand­ing per­for­mance re­quire­ments of mod­ern ma­chin­ery, SKF has up­graded the Ex­plorer per­for­mance class of self-align­ing rolling bear­ings to pro­vide sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments to ser­vice life un­der both poor lu­bri­ca­tion and con­tam­i­nated en­vi­ron­ments.

By ex­tend­ing bear­ing life to an av­er­age of twice the life of pre­vi­ous Ex­plorer class bear­ings un­der common op­er­a­tional con­di­tions, sig­ni­fies a large step for­ward in re­li­a­bil­ity and re­duced plant main­te­nance re­quire­ments.

Sealed spher­i­cal roller bear­ings

Sealed Ex­plorer spher­i­cal roller bear­ings made are sealed with high-per­for­mance con­tact seals and pre­lu­bri­cated with a high-qual­ity bear­ing grease. The seals pro­tect the bear­ing and lubri­cant from con­tam­i­nants that might oth­er­wise cause pre­ma­ture bear­ing fail­ure.

Nor­mally the only way to fight the ingress of con­tam­i­nants is by pump­ing large quan­ti­ties of grease through the bear­ing with the goal of forc­ing con­tam­i­nants out. How­ever, with sealed Ex­plorer spher­i­cal roller bear­ings, con­tam­i­nants are ef­fec­tively pre­vented from en­ter­ing the bear­ing.

This also al­lows the bear­ings un­der cer­tain con­di­tions to be con­sid­ered lu­bri­cated for the life of the bear­ing. By elim­i­nat­ing or ex­tend­ing re­lu­bri­ca­tion in­ter­vals, the cost to pur­chase and dis­pose of lubri­cant can be re­duced.

Re­duc­ing main­te­nance re­quire­ments costs can sub­stan­tially re­duce the to­tal cost of own­er­ship of an ap­pli­ca­tion.

Lu­bri­ca­tion sys­tems – sin­gle point sys­tems

Au­to­matic lubri­ca­tors can pro­vide re­li­able and cost ef­fec­tive so­lu­tions for 24/7 lu­bri­ca­tion, elim­i­nat­ing the “need to touch” and is ideal for hard to reach or hazardous lo­ca­tions.

SKF of­fers a range of sin­gle point lubri­ca­tors de­pend­ing on the ap­pli­ca­tion de­mands and come in a range of high per­for­mance grease op­tions to suit the ap­pli­ca­tion.
