SKF has launched a new family of energy efficient performance-class bearings engineered to reduce frictional movement by 30 per cent or more than that of SKF’s standard bearings.

By exhibiting ultra-low friction, the SKF E2 bearings enable equipment manufacturers to build greater energy efficiency into their equipment, reducing the total cost of ownership for end users.

Because the bearings are dimensionally interchangeable with ISO-standard components, conventional bearings can be upgraded quickly to reduce the energy consumption of existing equipment.

A variety of SKF E2 bearing types will be available off-the-shelf in common sizes, starting with single-row deep-groove ball bearings.

These ultra-low friction bearings offer a way to reduce mechanical friction in light-to-normal loaded applications, such as electric motors, pumps, and conveyors, cutting energy consumption as a result.

Furthermore, as the SKF E2 bearings run cooler than standard bearings at equivalent loads and speeds, additional benefits include longer grease life, and extended relubrication intervals, reducing maintenance and costs further.

The SKF family of energy efficient bearings are designed for use in a range of industrial equipment, including motors, fans, pumps and gearboxes, in sectors ranging from renewable power generation to transportation.

SKF E2 tapered roller bearings are available for automotive applications.

E2 spherical and cylindrical roller bearings will be released later in 2009.
