SKF to highlight its partnership credentials at Kormarine 2017

Gothenburg, Sweden, 26 September 2017: Under the banner ‘Simplify with SKF Marine’, leading bearing and seal manufacturer SKF will present its comprehensive range of marine products at Kormarine 2017 – the international marine, shipbuilding, offshore and oil & gas exhibition (Busan, Korea – October 24-27).

The overarching message of the company’s stand is that – SKF Marine is a global marine expert and single source of supply for your entire marine portfolio.

The company’s products solve a host of challenging marine issues that include waste oil handling, complying with rapidly changing environmental regulations, ensuring exceptional safety on-board vessels, and performing maintenance work effectively and efficiently.

Products displayed on SKF’s stand will include the company’s wire rope lubricator (which reduces downtime and prolongs service life in wire rope applications) and the newly unveiled SKF Quickgrip bolts (designed to connect high-torque rotating flanges more quickly, safely and reliably than conventional bolts).

Meanwhile featured marine condition monitoring solutions to speed up data collection and increase machines’ uptime will include the SKF Microlog Online System IMx-8, which gathers data 24/7 from sensors and transmits it to a host computer which runs the SKF condition monitoring software.

Also on show will be SKF Turbulo Sludge Buoy, a ‘fit and forget’ mechanical device requiring little maintenance, which makes  manual drainage obsolete and ensures fast and easy separation of oil and water in tanks. The system eliminates the need for consumables or spare parts and payback is typically less than a year.

SKF Marine maintains a 24-hour after sales service including comprehensive spare parts stock, extra production capacity for urgent service cases, underwater repair service, access to engineering consultants and software service, and trained service specialists throughout the world.

SKF will be exhibiting in Hall 4, booth: 4N 03 (German Pavilion)
