  • milled foot pads to provide a uniform flat surface for fasteners
  • special machining for lubrication and condition monitoring systems
  • different bearing seat tolerance classes
  • special seals
  • machined base ends, to enable precision positioning

Housing material

For applications where extra strength is needed, SAF housings are also available in cast steel, designation SAFS. Check availability prior to ordering. Cast steel housings come in three different designs. The different designs share the same dimensions as SAF housings made of grey cast iron.
SAF housings are also available in ductile iron (spheroidal graphite cast iron), designation SAFD, from size 509 to 544 and from size 215 to 244. For additional information, contact the SKF application engineering service.
