Load carrying capacity
Take-up housings made of cast iron are able to withstand at least the same dynamic and static loads as the insert bearings they incorporate. Take-up housings made of composite for the SKF Food Line are able at ambient temperature to withstand at least the same static load as the insert bearings they incorporate. These ball bearing units can also be used in applications where impact loads or varying axial loads occur, provided the strength of the adjustment screw and the way it is secured to the ball bearing unit is sufficient.
If ball bearing units are to be used in an application where health, safety, or the environment is at risk, the SKF application engineering service has to be contacted during the design phase.
