Don’t let worn or subpar bearings slow down your operations. SKF Cooper Bearings offer a high quality and wide range of split-to-the-shaft bearings, when compared to others available on the market. Designed with simplicity in mind, these bearings can be fitted, removed and inspected without having to dismantle surrounding equipment, resulting in less time for installation, changeover and inspection.
SKF Cooper's split-to-the-shaft cylindrical and double row tapered roller bearings deliver cost savings by supplying high quality bearings that help reduce downtime and increase uptime -- ideal for countless applications, even in the most challenging environments.
According to SKF, their Split-to-the-Shaft Bearings disassemble into smaller components easing the task of lifting and handling, and also making assembly or changeout simple, even in the most cramped and inaccessible conditions. Clearances are pre-set, so no on-site adjustment is needed and no specialist fitting tools are required.
SUCCESS STORY: STEEL MILL SAVES TIME, MONEY, WEAR AND TEAR
The Babbitt bearings in a steel mill’s four baghouse fans needed constant lubrication, which made reservoir refills and proper cleanup part of the mill’s daily routine. Overtime, this cost time and money for the facility.
Since the eight bearings in place lasted just three to four years each, one needed to be changed out about every six months; additionally, bearing failures often caused shaft damage.
A change to grease-lubricated SKF Cooper Split-to-the-Shaft Bearings eliminated the housekeeping challenges, and corresponding shaft damage, with a projected annual savings of $12,000 in oil and routine maintenance alone. It is expected that not only will the mill save in oil and maintenance, but according to SKF, the life of their Cooper bearings is at least 180,000 hours, or 2-to-4 times longer, than that of previous bearings.
SUCCESS STORY: Solid Bearing Failure Turns into An Applied® & SKF Success
A major automotive OEM was faced with the failure of a solid bearing in an SAF pillow block, which threatened to cost $24,000 in repairs, plus a five-day shutdown of the assembly line. To fix, crews would have needed to completely remove the main conveyor shaft to disassemble bearings and sprockets, disconnect the vehicle transfer chain and steel I-beams, just to allow clearance for the removal. Not only could this method prove to be incredibly labor intensive, it could also have contributed to the disruption of other parts and their functionality.
By utilizing an SKF Cooper Split-to-the-Shaft Bearing as a replacement for the solid bearing, easier installation without disassembling the shaft or chain was possible.
It is estimated that this saved over 400 hours and at least four days of downtime, not to mention, the SKF Cooper bearing is expected to have an overall longer service life.
