The SKF® solution for upgrading industrial fans focuses on reducing potentially high bearing operating temperatures, which can lead to bearing failure, shortened life of bearing lubrication, unplanned fan downtime, and production losses. The SKF solution enlists a variety of temperature-reducing components to reduce the risks. Every upgrade is based on an initial assessment of fan problems followed by interrelated recommendations for the fix. Elements include a circulating oil lubrication unit to reduce operating temperatures by removing heat; a self-aligning bearing system generating less friction (and less heat); several types of specially designed bearing housings and seals to help mitigate temperature issues; and a condition monitoring system to deliver early warning of potential bearing failure.
