Schaefflers FAG flanged housing units are now also available with condition monitoring and lubrication systems to optimize the overall operating costs. The locating and non-locating rotor bearing support, lubricating system, seal, and housing are precisely matched to each other and delivered in a ready-to-fit unit. This significantly reduces the outlay for the motor manufacturers design department and production facilities. To make sure that every customer requirement is covered, Schaeffler offers a total of four series:
- The grease-lubricated FERS and FERB series can be equipped with various bearing types depending on the requirements of the application and are suitable for both horizontal and vertical mounting positions.
- The FKC design was developed for heavy-duty horizontal machines and is equipped with a radial spherical roller bearing. This unit is lubricated with oil, and oil sump or recirculating oil lubrication can be implemented depending on requirements.
- The FKB design, which is intended for use in large vertical machines, is equipped with axial spherical roller bearings and a radial deep groove ball bearing, and can be used with either oil sump or recirculating oil lubrication.
The Schaeffler SmartCheck was developed specifically as a condition monitoring system for electric motors, fans, pumps, and similar machines. It can be adapted to fit the FAG flanged housing units and detects irregularities such as incipient bearing damage and imbalance based on the solid-borne vibrations. What is more, it can also be used in combination with an additional control system to trigger lubricating impulses to a grease lubricator like the Schaeffler Concept2. Both overgreasing and insufficient lubrication of rotor bearings that are lubricated with grease is thus reliably prevented. This increases the operating life of the bearings and reduces both the likelihood of failure and the maintenance costs for the drive.
