Did you know that poor lubrication causes about 36% of all premature bearing failures?
The proper lubrication of your bearings is a simple and cost effective way to ensure that they serve their maximum life span. With the right lubrication solution, you can create new opportunities to increase uptime and productivity. Along with helping to reduce premature bearing failures and machine downtime, proper lubrication can increase energy efficiency. At SKF, we can help you realize the true potential of lubrication.
Furthermore, if you consider contamination as a factor that effects your bearings’ life-span, improper lubrication will then account for more than 50% of premature bearing failures. With that in mind, it is obvious that an excellent lubrication solution (such as the products we offer) will greatly decrease your operating expenses by minimising equipment corrosion, extent service intervals, reducing energy consumptions and improve durability.
SKF lubrication solutions range from specialized lubricants to state-of-the-art lubrication systems.
Integrated SKF lubrication solutions combine our expertise in bearings, seals and condition monitoring with our tribology knowledge – the study of friction, wear and lubrication.
We have no doubt that our SKF lubricants is highly competitive and can offer you an array of advantages including:
- Consistent performance and excellence for every batch due to strict quality control processes.
- A long term shelf life of 5 years from the date of production.
- Incorporating test data into the product information so that clients can easily recognise the best choice for their needs.
- The lubricants have all performed under real-life scenarios during the testing process to ensure that they can keep up the performance during a crisis.
Additionally, the dispensing of lubricants is also crucial in terms of optimising your bearing life-span. To ensure that the lubricant is correctly dispensed, we suggest making use of one of our grease guns or lubricators.
One of our star products is the TLGB 20 grease gun. It is a battery driven, top of the range grease gun that dispense the precise amount of lubricants to your bearings. It was developed for maximum efficiency and includes a grease meter to avoid under or over lubricating. This extremely user friendly piece of equipment provides a sturdy flow and eliminates any inaccuracies or operating challenges with the vent valve that eliminates air bubbles.
With SKF and Top Class Bearings, you can also count on leading technical support and services. This includes lubrication management programmes to help with lubricant selection, planning and monitoring – all from a single, reliable partner.
