Because of their large internal clearance, the deep groove ball bearings for high temperatures can tolerate angular misalignments of the outer ring in relation to the inner ring of 20 to 30 minutes of arc. This applies only when the bearings rotate slowly as the rolling conditions in the bearing under such misalignments are unfavourable.
During mounting Y-bearing units are able to compensate for errors of alignment up to 5°.
