The permissible operating temperature is mainly limited by the seals (table 1) and the lubricant in the bearing. For temperature limits of SKF bearings and lubricants, refer to the relevant product information.
The housing material does not have any additional temperature limits, except for very low temperature applications where impact strength could be a factor. The housing paint is heat resistant up to 175 °F material temperature or 210 °F ambient temperature.
When temperatures outside the permissible range are expected, contact the SKF application engineering service.
