Operating speed

The speeds at which SKF inch roller bearing units can be operated depend on the sealing solution in the bearing unit. For bearing units fitted with TriGard or radial shaft seals, the limiting speeds are based on the permissible circumferential speed at the seal lips (table 1). For bearing units fitted with labyrinth seals, the limiting speeds are imposed by the bearing size and grease.
Guideline values for the limiting speeds are listed in the product tables for Plummer block roller bearing units, SKF ConCentra, Plummer block roller bearing units, locking collar, Flanged roller bearing units, locking collar and Flanged roller bearing units, locking collar and spigot.
