The Y-TECH housings and the cast iron housings of Y-bearing units are able to support the same loads as the bearings which they house. These bearing units are also able to support shock loads, particularly the Y-TECH units.
The bearing units with pressed sheet steel housings are only intended for moderate loads and are less suitable for shock loads.
If Y-bearing units are to be used in any type of equipment for the conveyance of people, the SKF application engineering service should be contacted.
