Depending on their design, series and size, SKF stainless steel deep groove ball bearings are fitted with one of the cages shown in table 1. The standard stamped stainless steel cage is not identified in the bearing designation. If non-standard cages are required, check availability prior to ordering.
The lubricants generally used for rolling bearings do not have a detrimental effect on cage properties. However, some synthetic oils and greases with a synthetic oil base and lubricants containing EP additives, when used at high temperatures, can have a detrimental effect on polyamide cages. For additional information about the suitability of cages, refer to Cages and Cage materials.
