Why SKF SNL?
SKF SNL offers industry leading performance, unlike any other in the market:
High machining quality – Extremely accurate bore tolerances provide improved bearing seat quality, resulting in low running temperatures, long bearing, and seal life. Industry leading performance SNL housings series 2,3,5 and 6 and series 30,31 and 32.
Bearing service life – Strict compliance to specified bore tolerances improves housing performance and bearing service life.
High strength material – Enables high load carrying capacity. The spheroidal graphite housing option is suitable for high shock loading.
Sealing options – There is a range of different sealing arrangements available which are interchangeable with earlier generations of SKF housing.
Simple, accurate mounting and alignment – Caps and bases are marked separately for fast, error-free, and safe mounting. Identification markings are the same for easy traceability.
Excellent heat conduction – An extra reinforcement in the middle of the housing improves heat flow from bearing to support surface.
