Bearings for Power Generation Industry

ERIKS has a vast knowledge of bearing applications in all areas of power generation Power generation industryfrom traditional coal and gas fired power stations to the nuclear industry and renewable energy.

We understand the key industry drivers such as health safety and product traceability are critical.

Traditional generation

Operators of coal and gas fired power stations are often faced with old plant infrastructure and obsolescence of spare parts. High levels of contamination, uneven or shock loads are common and reliability must be maintained at all times on plant ranging from conveyors to crushers to pumps.

Key products and solutions:

revolvo SRB
Revolvo Split Roller Bearings (SRB)
Fully split to the shaft Housed Cylindrical Roller Bearings with brass cages, perfect for trapped applications, where surrounding equipment would have to be removed (couplings, motors, gearboxes etc) to fit a normal bearing.  With brass cages and seals which move with the bearing during misalignment to ensure no sealing gap occurs, SRB’s are ideal for heavy duty and contaminated applications.
Spherical roller bearing solid block housed units
Timken Spherical Roller Bearing Solid-block Housed Units (formerly QM Blue-Brute)
Timken® spherical roller bearing solid-block housed units are designed for the most challenging circumstances. Made with cast-steel housings and Timken high-performance spherical roller bearings, these are the only spherical roller bearing housed units to offer steel solid-block housing as standard.
Automatic delivery of lubricant to a single point for up to 12 months requiring no external power source.


Renewable Energy

Renewable energy technology and plant design is developing at a rapid pace but some technologies are now well established elements in the UK power generation portfolio. 

Wind turbines for example generate electricity in adverse, constantly changing conditions both onshore and offshore. This places extremely high demands on all of the turbine’s components – especially the bearings. As well as enduring high speeds, they have to withstand dynamic loads and in offshore applications corrosive atmosphere.  For offshore applications the key is to minimise maintenance and ensure reliability at all times.
