SKF high-temperature bearing units are constructed to consist of a corrosion-resistant phosphate
SKF high-temperature bearing units are designed to provide self-lubricating and drip-free solutions engineered for baking oven applications. A graphite internal cage is made to deliver lubrication to promote cost savings in time and money otherwise spent on grease and related maintenance. These units designed for high temperatures (rated 662º F and 350º C) are made to combine proprietary technology and quality materials and manufacture to achieve long-lasting and uninterrupted service life up to 40,000 hours.
Applications for these cost-cutting bearing units are built to include automated baking ovens for snacks, breads, breakfast foods from cereals to energy bars, and wafers, among many others. The bearing units are made for shaft speeds up to 100 rpm and can be specified by OEMs or are made to serve as drop-in replacements for existing less-robust components.
Among other features of these bearing units, the housings are contructed to consist of a corrosion-resistant phosphate coating over zinc chromate cast iron to resist the flaking commonly encountered with nickel plating. Housings are made to be supplied as pillow block, 2-bolt or 4-bolt flange, or for drop-in installation. The self-lubricating bearing inserts (2XC5 internal clearance) are designed in bore sizes ¾ in. to 3 in. and 20mm to 60mm and the self-lubricating deep-groove ball bearings (4XC5 internal clearance) are built to integrate bearing steel and a design to protect against the potential ingress of contaminants.
