SKF Lubrication Solutions has launched a made-in-Canada circulating oil system to meet the needs of customers using high speed or high temperature applications where the use of grease is not practical.
The SKF circulating oil lubrication unit delivers a continuous flow of cooled and filtered oil directly to rolling bearings, for example those in industrial fans. The metered pump flow is matched to the bearing and housing size, preventing oil leaks and excessive heat associated with oversized pumping systems. The use of circulating oil lubrication may also reduce bearing vibration associated with the use of grease lubricant at higher speeds.
The Canadian made circulating oil lubrication units are available in two standard tank sizes – 75 and 130 litres. Other sizes are available on request.
Lubrication problems – too much, too little, the wrong type, or contamination – is responsible for 36% of all premature bearing failures, according to SKF. Preventing such failures, as well as ensuring optimal bearing and machine performance, means delivering the right lubricant, in the right amount, with the right lubrication system, at the right lubrication point.
