- 500 hours at 120 °C (250 °F) with intermittent peaks of up to 10 minutes at 150 °C (300 °F)
100 hours at –40 °C (–40 °F)
- the dimensional stability of the bearing rings and balls
- the cage
- the seal
- the lubricant
When temperatures outside the permissible range are expected, contact the SKF application engineering service.
Bearing rings and balls
For applications where the voltage supply is above 18 V and temperature exceeds 85 °C (185 °F), SKF recommends placing a 1 kΩ resistor in series with the supply line to limit heat generated by the electronic components.
