Energy efficient sealed bearings

SKF has launched its Sealed Energy Efficient deep groove ball bearing, the E2 DGBB, for applications in industries such as electric motors and two-wheelers to industrial conveyors and water pumps.
“The deep groove ball bearing is a good example of a sustainable solution that saves energy in many different applications,” says Luigi Cavallero, Business Development Manager, Business Unit Powertrain & Electrical and Two Wheeler, SKF.
“Our products are suitable to meet the needs of the many energy saving programmes planned and implemented worldwide.”
The sealed E2 DGBB reduces friction by more than 30 per cent compared to the SKF Explorer sealed DGBB. As a result the product significantly saves energy and reduces CO2. The new feature, compared to the previously launched E2 performance class of bearings, is the addition of a seal that provides minimal interference between the inner ring and seal lip without compromising the performance of the sealing ability.
The SKF Sealed Energy Efficient deep groove ball bearing is available in sizes up to 52 mm outer diameter.
