SKF's Gothenburg factory has produced the company's largest sealed spherical roller bearing (SRB) to date. The '241/900' SRB is 50 per cent larger and three times heavier than the previous largest SKF sealed SRB.

Features and applications

Destined for a Polysius Polycom 8 roller press at a large copper mine in Peru, the three-tonne 241/900 sealed SRB is dimensionally equivalent to a standard SKF non-sealed version, with inner diameter (bore) of 900mm, outer diameter of 1,420mm and width of 515mm. The seal itself consists of a rubber over-moulded steel plate with the same profile and offering the same characteristics as those currently used with existing SKF sealed SRBs. The customer’s sealed SRB will be fitted to a horizontal shaft and will operate in extremely dusty conditions, with very fine stone dust from both the desert location itself and the grinding processes posing a major contamination risk.

Highly loaded application

The roller press is a highly loaded application (C/P of 2-3) subject to frequent shock loading; the predominantly radial loads, when coupled with the high level of contamination at the site, poses a significant risk of early bearing failure. SKF’s custom made seal aims to at least double the bearing service life by reducing the risk of contamination in this application significantly.
