SKF has recently announced a patented NoWear coating application for bearings to promote longer life and increased machinery uptime. According to the company’s press release, the coating can withstand severe operating conditions due to load and speed variations, poor lubrication conditions, vibration, smearing and/or solid particle contamination. Applications include compressors, pumps, fans and blowers, and gearboxes.
For insulation, INSOCOAT roller bearings by SKF are available to protect against damage caused by AC or DC electric current. These bearings feature a thin oxide layer that integrates the electrical insulating function to protect against electric arcing and damaging bearing erosion. All coated bearing boundary dimensions conform to ISO and ABMA standards.
