SKF MRC® brand Spherical Roller Bearings – Pulp and Paper
SKF MRC® brand launches first-ever corrosion-resistant steel spherical roller bearings for pulp and paper applications. The industry’s first corrosion-resistant steel spherical roller bearing has actually been in use for several years at a paper mill in Florida. Outfitted with a V-ring sealing solution, the MRC HNCR bearings were installed on a wet section felt roll. Typical bearing service life in this application is about 36 months. After more than five years of service with no unplanned stops, the bearings were removed for inspection. At 60+ months of continuous service, they showed no signs of surface distress. Since reinstallation, the HNCR bearings have continued to exceed expectations and are now approaching seven years of trouble-free service.
