RS Components trebles its SKF bearings portfolio

Third Quarter 2021 News & events

RS Components has added 4000 SKF bearings to its portfolio, increasing the offering to a total of 6000. This is the first step in RS significantly increasing its SKF range offer across bearings, power transmission and seals over the next 12 months.

SKF’s Blue range of food bearings follows innovative hygienic design principles and is relubrication-free. Compared to conventional designs, which can harbour contaminants such as airborne droplets, wastewater, or contaminated grease, SKF’s food bearings feature curved surfaces with a smooth finish. The ball bearings are easy to wash down, reducing the risk of bacteria build-up. Furthermore, these relubrication-free bearings are maintenance-free, which increases production uptime and product lifetime and eliminates re-greasing material and maintenance costs.

The SKF spherical roller bearings range includes CC, CA and E design bearings, sealed bearings and bearings designed specifically for high vibration, high speed and wind energy applications. All designs are self-aligning, feature rugged window- or prong-type cages and accommodate high radial and axial loads in both directions. The symmetrical rollers self-adjust, providing optimal load distribution along the roller length and the unique profile prevents stress peaks at the roller ends. Self-guiding rollers keep friction and frictional heat at low levels. A floating guide ring guides unloaded rollers so that they enter the load zone in the optimal position.
